For 5 years, every time we've raised the bar for our scholarship, students have surpassed it! So, this year we're upping the challenge once again. To demonstrate our continued belief in students' phenomenal ability to use their learning to better the world around them, we created the:

HonorsGradU Design a Better Future $10,000 Scholarship


Whether through essays or multimedia, students have used their voices to share visions for a better world. So, here's their chance to put them to action! We're asking high school seniors to submit a proposal for how they'll better their communities. Because this will be a much more rigorous process with multiple rounds, we're also raising the bar for tuition awards: from five $1,000 tuition awards to five $10,000 tuition awards! We will also fund the top project up to $5,000.


We will be breaking the process into 3 rounds, using the principles of design thinking:

  1. Design and submit your ROUND 1 proposal:
    • First 3 stages of design thinking Launch cycle
    • Students submit overall proposal based on the Ford Institute community building principles
    • We select applications based on their completion, seriousness, and viability, offering feedback for those approved to move on to round 2.
    • Deadline: February 11, 2018, 11:59 MST
  2. Design and submit your ROUND 2 artifact:
    • Next 3 phases of design thinking launch cycle (all but the final launch)
    • Students submit an artifact representing their progress and learning
    • We give additional feedback
    • Deadline: March 18, 2018, 11:59 MST
  3. Design and submit your ROUND 3 reflection:
    • LAUNCH phase of design thinking launch cycle.
    • Students submit a final reflection that shares how their project is doing one of the following: 1) increasing connections, 2) building capacity, or 3) taking community-led action. They also share their ideas for acquiring further funding, in addition to the $5,000 from HGU if selected as the top finalist.
    • Include a video of yourself working on your project
    • Deadline: April 15, 2018 at 11:59 MST.

We will select 5 winners to receive $10,000 tuition scholarships to their colleges, with the top one receiving $5,000 funding to launch their project into the design thinking cycle once more during the summer of 2018 to maximize impact.

Here is a link to anything else you may need to know to tell your students about our scholarship, including a digital form for them to submit their projects: https://www.honorsgraduation.com/graduation-scholarship.htm.
