Purpose and Scholarship Application Instructions

The Keshia Clark Scholarship provides financial assistance to a high school senior who exhibits her legacy of hard work and determination despite adversity. Adversity can be defined as an unfavorable fortune or fate; a condition marked by misfortune, calamity, or distress.  Adversity allows us the opportunity to find out what we are capable of, to develop our strengths, and to access aspects of ourselves that we did not know existed and inner resources we didn't know we had.


Application Instructions:

  1. Complete the attached application entirely.
  2. Submit a 300-500-word essay, double spaced using 12-point font (Ariel or Times New Roman) to answer the question: What adversity have you overcome and how has it impacted your life?
  3. Provide an official copy of your high school transcript as of the end of the fall 2019 semester.
  4. Provide two Letters of Recommendation from adults affiliated with your school and/or community (relatives excluded).
