Book Lovers Scholarship

A $500 grant to support students who love reading books

About the Scholarship

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Suess 

Every book you read provides endless opportunities to explore and learn new ideas. Reading can be thrilling, exciting, relaxing, funny, and much, much more. In allowing you to move beyond the limitations of your direct experience, books can teach you how to live, how to be a good person, how to lead, and how to succeed.

This scholarship aims to support students who love reading great books and believe in the power of reading to transform their lives and become good people in the world. 

All students with a passion for reading may apply for this scholarship.
