Ignite CHANGE, a non-profit community organization that focuses on sports leadership, together with The GM’s Perspective, announces the launching of its $1,000 scholarship for one deserving student who is passionate about making a difference.
Applications are open from July 1 to October 31, and the winner will be announced on Jan 1 next year.
Award-winning entrepreneur and athletic mentor Devon Teeple, Ignite Change founder and the author behind The GM’s Perspective blog, shares why he started this initiative.
“I believe a student’s personal passion and motivation is the driving force behind everything,” Teeple explained. “Our objective is to allow students to take full advantage of what’s in front of them.”
Teeple said that this annual scholarship aims to help students who have a passion for making a difference.
“If you are passionate about making a difference, we want to be able to assist you in making that happen.”
Students who can apply for the scholarship must be an undergraduate from any Canadian or U.S. 4-year institution and must have a 2.75 GPA or better.
Along with their resume and a 500-word essay, applicants are also required to submit their Transcript of Records from their current or most recently attended high school, college, or university. They should email all these requirements to [email protected] or [email protected].
A select committee will review all completed applications, and Ignite CHANGE would announce who got the scholarship on their website.
