The size of scholarship awards vary year to year depending on the funds available from donations to Geography of Hope, and the discretion of the board. Only completed applications are considered. Starting in October, scholarship applications are reviewed, by committee, on the 14th of each month through April or until all funds have been awarded. Before scholarships are officially awarded scholarship recipients must complete the Road Less Traveled admissions process. At this time we only award scholarships to students, grades 9-12, residing in the United States.   Thank you for your interest.
