Martin luther King Jr., "DREAM" Scholarship
Each year the MidloMLKDay Committee will sponsor the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship in order to commemorate Dr. King's belief that "progress is best achieved through cooperation rather than conflict, participation rather than partisanship, and compassion and understanding rather than hatred and prejudice."
PURPOSE: Recognizing that one of the nation's most precious resources is our children, this fund is established to provide an opportunity to those young adult men and women who seek college-entry financial support. The MidloMLKDay Committee has pursued an award philosophy where national scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit and personal achievement. This group will award individual scholarship grants each year, given as two-year (2) or four-year (4) scholarships.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE: ► Applicant must be a minority student ► Applicant must be a current student a Midlothian High or Heritage High School, Midlothian ISD, Midlothian, Texas ► Applicant must attend an accredited college or university
SCHOLARSHIP AMOUNT: The scholarship amount of $1000 is paid directly to the college or university.
