I alone cannot change the world,
but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Prepare 4 Tomorrow Scholarship
This year Helping Hands and Caring Hearts of America will award (2) $5,000 Prepare 4 Tomorrow scholarships to applicants based on financial need, application presentation, teacher recommendations and GPA. College-bound minority high school seniors who currently reside in the Dallas-Fort Worth or Rochester, NY areas and intend on continuing their education in the fall, as full-time students at an accredited community college or a four-year college, are eligible to apply for the Prepare 4 Tomorrow Scholarship.
Complete the Prepare 4 Tomorrow Scholarship online application, which includes a 500 word essay. Each applicant must also have two teacher recommendation forms submitted, an approved FAFSA as proof of financial need, their high school transcript and a college acceptance letter. All forms have to be received by 11:59pm on Monday, June 1, 2020 to be eligible. (Note we have extended the deadline due to the COVID-19 school closures to allow each applicant more time to complete their volunteer hours.) Any applications or accompanying documentation received after this time will not be eligible for the scholarships. All applications missing the required documentation at this time will not be eligible for the scholarships.
The application process for the Prepare 4 Tomorrow Scholarship is Open.
After an applicant has been awarded the Prepare 4 Tomorrow Scholarship they will be required to perform 40 hours of volunteer services with the Helping Hands and Caring Hearts of America volunteer Teams in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Rochester, NY Communities.
The Prepare 4 Tomorrow scholarship winner will submit their volunteer form and Helping Hands and Caring Hearts of America will send the college of your choice a scholarship of $5,000.00 annually (in two equal installments) for tuition, housing, books and fees. Students must continue to attend classes and maintain no lower than a 2.5 grade-point average (or equivalent).
