Build Your Career Scholarship

Thanks to the generosity of founding donors Bill and Donna Kenney, we are launching the “Build Your Career” scholarship program for qualified students living in an Our Towns Habitat for Humanity home. This scholarship program will provide up to $2,000 in scholarship funds each year to one or more eligible students.

The first scholarship funds will be awarded for the 2019-20 academic year. The application period for this year is closed.

To be eligible, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Have lived in an Our Towns Habitat for Humanity home for at least 12 months AND be a Habitat mortgage holder in good standing, or the spouse, child or legal dependent of the mortgage holder.
  • Be a high school senior or graduate, have a GED certificate or be a current postsecondary undergraduate or nontraditional student.
  • Be eligible and plan to enroll for a minimum of three credit hours or equivalent per term for the upcoming academic year in an undergraduate degree or certificate program of study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical program.
  • Have financial need, as demonstrated by submitting any college financial aid eligibility determination and/or award letter.

Applications will be accepted beginning Feb. 6, 2019, with a deadline for submission of March 29, 2019. This is a rolling application process, with the first five qualified applications received being eligible for consideration.
