The UCT Heaston Scholarship Program was established in 2013 to help high school graduates achieve their dreams of a college education. A major criterion for the scholarships is for applicants to show evidence of hard work and overcoming personal obstacles to achieve their goals. Applicants are asked to discuss their academic careers and extracurricular activities – and provide examples of hard work, challenges they have had to face, and persistence in the face of adversity. Examples of commitment to community service are also requested.
Scholarships are awarded to students with the equivalent of high school senior status. Students must be enrolled and entering a college program in the coming academic year. All funds disbursed are to be used for school-related expenses and are sent directly to the college/university. Applications are due March 15 and the recipients are announced in May. The guidelines and application are available on our website.
