Youth Foundation Maude and Alexander Hadden Scholarships
February 28, 2024
- Scholarship Description
Youth Foundation’s basic objective is the awarding of Hadden Scholarships to exceptionally worthy, financially needy, secondary school seniors for their undergraduate college education. The Scholarship Committee selects the recipients after carefully evaluating character, scholastic records, financial need, extra-curricular activities and community service. No scholarship is given to a student unless his or her college has agreed to refrain from reducing its own scholarship grant at the expense of the Youth Foundation’s award.
Scholarship amounts are subject to change; the award for the coming academic year is up to $5,000 per scholar. Awards are for a maximum of four regular undergraduate school years. Subject to the rules of a student’s college or university, Hadden Scholarships may be applied toward a semester or year of study abroad. Hadden Scholars must be U.S. citizens matriculating at a four-year accredited college or university established in the United States. Applicants must have a minimum 3.5 GPA and demonstrate scholastic achievement, financial need and leadership ability.
