Cameron Impact Scholarship
The Cameron Impact Scholarship will be awarded annually to approximately 10-15 high-school seniors (applying late Junior year or early Senior year in high school). This four-year, merit-based scholarship is intended to cover the full "educational expenses" at the recipient's chosen collegiate institution (estimated to be between $20,000-$50,000 per annum). Educational expenses vary amongst higher institutions, but the Scholarship is intended to cover tuition, fees, course-related expenses, books, supplies, and equipment. The application deadline is September 15, the number of awards is 10, and the maximum awards amount is $50,000.
The Foundation will allocate approximately 25%, or a quarter of the scholarships to individuals pursuing careers in education, nonprofits, government, and/or military and have a stated professional goal of public service. However, the criterion for the Scholarship is intentionally broad. There are countless ways to make a positive impact in many professional careers (finance, education, healthcare, technology, military, legal, sports, engineering and art to name a few). In either the Private or Public Sector, the Cameron Impact Scholar has the ability to make real, tangible contributions in their lifelong dedication to the greater good.
