Honors Graduation - Design A Better Future Scholarship

Organization & Scholarship Overview:
Ever wondered just how much of a difference high school students can make on their communities? In our 2020 scholarship program, our past winners proved it can be profound. That’s why our 2021 Design a Better Future scholarship will also be a design thinking community improvement project based on the LAUNCH Cycle. We will also fund five more $10,000 tuition awards, with the top project receiving up to $5,000.
