The scholarship is awarded based on both academic merit and financial need. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and demonstrate financial need through their FAFSA application. Recipients will receive up to $5,000 per academic year to help cover the cost of tuition, fees, and other educational expenses.
