Steps For Change Scholarship

The Wealth By Health Steps For Change Foundation awards three exceptional individuals from low-income families each year with $2,000 scholarships to pursue post-secondary education and encourage community leadership. This scholarship opportunity is an encouragement for young individuals to become community leaders and take initiative on their future goals continuously after high school education.

 

The Steps For Change Scholarship is an income and merit based scholarship awarded to high school seniors applying to a college or university to further their career goals. Students from low-income families are recognized for their capacity to lead and commitment to making a significant impact on communities. Award recipients must display academic excellence, exude passion in empowering the community, and exemplify a desire for continuous personal growth.

 

We intend to recognize and alleviate financial burden for exceptional students from disadvantaged backgrounds for their determination in working towards future goals, positive contribution to society, and a strong vision for future personal and professional goals.
