BVIN Agent of Change Scholarship is open to Indiana residents at least 17yrs old who will be attending an Indiana college, university or trade/technical school in the fall. Winners must have organized and led an extraordinary service activity which has clearly benefited other people or the community we share. The service activity must have been initiated and motivated primarily by the winner. The service activity cannot have been done solely to complete an assignment for school or work.
Winners must have: demonstrated positive spirit, courage, generosity, and high moral purpose; shown initiative, tenacity, and unselfishness in pursuit of their goals; accomplished something with inspirational value--something that could inspire others to make a difference; and done more than survive a difficult personal challenge. Their heroism must have made an impact on the community beyond themselves.
