Hawkinson Foundation Scholarships have been awarded each year to undergraduate and graduate students who demonstrate a commitment to peace and justice. The Hawkinson Foundation defines peace and justice broadly. Past scholarship recipients have worked on international healthcare, LGBT equality, Native American rights, domestic violence, human rights, and health disparities in low-income communities among others. Scholarships are not available to high school seniors at this time.
To be eligible for the Hawkinson Foundation Scholarship, applicants must be a resident of (or currently attending school in) Minnesota, and have received a high school diploma or GED before the due date of this application. Scholarship finalists must be available for an electronic interview (Zoom, Facebook). Scholarships are awarded without regard to religious affiliation. Scholarship recipients should submit a brief report describing how the scholarship funds were used. Applications run from January until the deadline.
