Advancing the education of exceptionally promising students who have financial need

What is Unmet Financial Need?

To be competitive, applicants must demonstrate significant unmet financial need.

While the Foundation considers academic excellence first in evaluating candidates, competitive applicants must also demonstrate unmet financial need, which has two components:

  • Education costs that are appreciably greater than the total amount of other scholarships or grant awards.
  • Insufficient student and family income to meet educational costs.
