Qualified candidates seek to attend an accredited college or university to further their vision. The maximum annual family income to qualify for this program is $150,000 in the given tax year of the application (tax forms will not be required to apply, only an estimate, but updated federal tax information may be requested to verify a winner’s official status). All scholarship recipients will possess the following credentials:

Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited public or private high school (no full-time home-schooling students are eligible) and students must be in their junior or senior year to be eligible to receive an award. Students must also have a cumulative grade point average (unweighted) of 3.0 or greater at the time of application submission to qualify for an award. Factors involved in the award decision include:
