This scholarship is awarded in recognition of academic potential, involvement in community activities and leadership. There is no limit to the number of awards made on an annual basis and the scholarship is renewable for four (4) years according to standard scholarship renewal policies at Syracuse University.

To apply for this scholarship, undergraduate students must submit a statement of participation that is endorsed by their AmeriCorps program director.
