Arizona Multicultural HomeSchool Alliance recognizes the need for diversity training and experiences in our society for young adults. It is because of this need that we launched the Unity Services in the United States (USUS) Project-Based Scholarship. We find an area in need. Then selected students are placed in the area to help bring about resolution within our community.
To those who care about their community and can back it up with their own project, essay, or declared major, there is potential to win scholarships too. These scholarship opportunities are especially welcoming to driven students, as many USUS scholarships allow students to implement their projects and ideas or attend conferences to learn more about their prospective cause. If you are considering launching a career in a community-based service field, winning a USUS scholarship can be a great way to start.
The power within education is a key component for young minds who will become tomorrow’s top leaders. They will navigate the future of our communities. By placing these students within the field on a project they are able to sharpen their learned skills in a new environment and new setting while maximizing their interactions within that community. This is high level hands-on education.
To be eligible to apply for the USUS scholarship, you must meet the below listed criteria:
- Graduated from an accredited high-school or approved homeschool program.
- Earned a minimum 3.0 GPA or above
- Complete an essay on an area of interest in business and why that area is of interest
- Create a map of what success achieving your goal looks like
- Complete a USUS project-based community initiative or an approved
- Self-motivated community-based project.
Recipient responsibilities are to grow from service to broaden their scope of a variety of people in our community.
USUS Scholars will report what is found in their field project. At our History in the Making Award recipients are expected to creatively express through a power-point presentation, artistic reenactment, or speech what they learned regarding our community needs and resolutions to attack each need. They must also include how they personally grew from the project in regards to their interactions with the people in the community. Recipient findings will be publicized through our newsletter, social media, and news for all donors to track their investment into the success of students completing our Unity Service in the United States Scholarship.
