EMPOWER Scholarships

EMPOWER Scholarships are open to ethnically diverse students for attendance at an institution of higher learning.

The EMPOWER scholarships were established in 1994. They are made possible through the David Hersey Endowment Fund, thanks to the generosity of Adele Hersey and her family.

Selection is based on the applicant's intentions, achievements, volunteerism and need. Applications are collected every year from January 1 – May 15. The awards are given in June.
