Inheritance of Hope Legacy Scholarship

Inheritance of Hope Legacy Scholarship
The Inheritance of Hope Legacy Scholarship is awarded annually to a college-bound high school senior who is living with a terminally ill parent and who demonstrates a compelling personal and financial need, a strong sense of family, and collegiate promise.

Sponsored by the Inheritance of Hope Foundation, the scholarship competition requires applicants to be legal residents of the United States, who are 18 years of age or older. Minors can also apply, but should have a parent’s or legal guardian’s permission to enter.

To apply, students must complete and submit the online application form, and submit a video entry of themselves answering the required questions. All video submission must be no longer than 5 minutes, and the file should be no bigger than 100MB.

In addition, to prove that there parent is terminally ill, students must submit a letter from a doctor verifiying that the parent has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. The letter must be on the doctor's letterhead and must include the Full name of the ill parent, the date, the diagnosis, and the doctor's printed name and signature.

All eligible entries received will be judged by a panel of qualified judges on the criteria of how the student and his/her family has been impacted by the parent's illness, what the parent means to the student and how the parent has shaped who the student is today, and why exactly the student needs a scholarship.

Winners will be notified by telephone and/or email, and in the event of a tie, such tied entries will be re-judged by an additional “tie-breaking” judge based on the criteria set.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MAY of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000.
