    The scholarship will be presented by the World Youth Foundation, Inc., which is a 501 (c) non-profit organization, which does accept individual and contributions and donations. The 2016 awardees will be acknowledged at the Seeds of Gratitude Appreciation Reception.

    Five deserving students will be awarded scholarships in the amount of $1,000 a year.

    The Scholarship and Awards committee is assigned the task of selecting the award recipients. The selections will be based on scholastic achievement, teacher recommendation, written essay, school and community activities and a personal interview.
