2018 Design a Better Future Scholarship

The GIST:

Whether through essays or multimedia, students have used their voices to share visions for a better world. So here's their chance to put them to action! We're asking high school seniors to submit a proposal for how they'll better thier communities. Because this will be a much more rigorous process with multiple rounds, we're also raising the bar for tuition awards: from five $1,000 tuition awards to five $10,000 tuition awards! We will also fund the top project up to $5,000.

The PROCESS:

We will be breaking the process into 3 rounds, using the principles of design thinking:

We will select 5 winners to receive $10,000 tuition scholarships to their colleges, with the top one receiving $5,000 funding to launch their project into the design thinking cycle once more during the summer of 2018 to maximize impact.
