The Ascend Scholarship is for a returning college student preparing to enter his/her second year in an institution of higher learning with no lapses in semester to help offset some of the cost of the student’s education.

The essay topic for this year’s submissions is: Nevertheless She Persisted: Visionary Women. Essays should discuss one visionary woman of the past and one visionary woman of the present that persisted to overcome obstacles. What were some of her struggles and how did she work to overcome them? What vision did she have to make the world a better place?

Applications for this scholarship are open from March 4 – March 29, 2019.
