Titus 236 Scholarship Competition

Titus 235 Scholarship Competition

Atlanta GLOW is excited to announce our first ever scholarship competition, the Titus 235 Scholarship, which we are offering in concert with our summer Leadership Incubator Program! In the broader biblical context of the book of Titus, chapter 2 and verses 3-5, Paul describes to Titus that teaching and training young women is primarily the responsibility of older women. Young women need older women to come alongside them, give them help and support, and, in the minutiae of life, offer words of wisdom and a godly example of how to lead and serve in their lives and the community.

Through our mentoring program, this has been one of Atlanta GLOW’s roles since inception, and this scholarship opportunity will further build upon our organization’s efforts to inspire women and girls to make an impact in their communities and help create positive change through education, service, and mentorship.

​Thus, Atlanta GLOW will award one applicant with a $1,000 scholarship to aid with her college journey, made payable to her school of choice. Additionally, two applicants will be chosen to each receive a $125 stipend to furnish their college dorm room with college supplies and/or décor.

Eligible applicants must apply online and submit the required materials, by Friday, April 28, 2017. If selected as a semi-finalist, applicants will be notified by Monday, May 29, 2017 that they have been advanced to the second round, which includes a service project presentation and required participation in our Leadership Incubator Program. Scholarships will be awarded to the chosen finalists during the Leadership Incubator Program on Saturday, July 8, 2017.

Please download our 2017 Titus 235 Scholarship Application Package to learn more about eligibility, the required service hours and essay, and submission instructions.

Study Soup Scholarships

About StudySoup

We launched the StudySoup peer-to-peer learning marketplace in 2014, and now we are announcing our new Future Innovator Scholarship Program. When we were in school, we found that success in the classroom can be a pretty ambiguous thing. Every class has hours of lectures and dozens of readings. Come midterm time, most students are overwhelmed and have no idea how they should study. Without fail, however, there are always a few top students in the class who know exactly what it takes to be successful. We decided to empower those top students to help their peers, and make money, by posting their high quality study materials to StudySoup.com.

At the end of the day, learning from your peers is the best way to learn, because after all, who understands your questions better than someone else in the class?

Scholarship Details

As a company driven to help students succeed, we know that college is an important step along many career paths, but it can be expensive. Students can upload notes to StudySoup to lighten their financial burden. However, we still felt like we could do more to give back to the future leaders of the world. Therefore, we are offering a $2,000 scholarship each semester to outstanding students who exemplify one or more of StudySoup’s core values:

Be a Knight

Make an Impact

Succeed Together

You may have mentored a fellow student, organized a fundraiser for charity, or gone on a humanitarian trip abroad. Whatever your achievements, we want to hear from you!

Scholarship Eligibility

Any individual at least sixteen (16) years old who meets one of the following criteria:

Currently attending high school (or equivalent) and will be attending an accredited university or college in the next academic year

Currently attending an accredited university or college (undergraduate and graduate students are both eligible)
