The nonprofit LIFE Foundation is now accepting applications for its annual LIFE Lessons Scholarship Program, which benefits college students and college-bound high school seniors who have lost a parent or legal guardian who did not have life insurance. Forty-six students will be awarded scholarships ranging from $2,000 – $15,000 based on a 500-word written essay or 3-minute video that describes the ways their lives have changed since the death of their loved one.
The LIFE Lessons Scholarship program is open to students between the ages of 17 and 24 who have been accepted to, or are currently enrolled in, a college, university, or trade school, and have suffered the loss of a parent or legal guardian without a life insurance policy. Candidates must apply to the program online at http://www.lifehappens.org/
The LIFE Foundation will award a total of 46 scholarships in 2014, including two $15,000 grand-prize scholarships, a $10,000 scholarships, four $7,500 scholarships, nine $5,000 scholarships and 30 $2,000 scholarships. To view the story of last year’s grand prize winner, Shane LeBarge, click here.
