The Legacy Lab, Team One’s award-winning think tank and strategic consultancy has announced the call for submissions for its annual scholarship. For the third year in a row, the scholarship aims to support a student who represents the next wave of legacy makers, future leaders dedicated to creating lasting and positive change in their communities and beyond. The recipient will receive $10,000 to put toward school-related expenses, helping them continue their development as a leader and work toward their long-term ambition.
The Scholarship is again looking to recognize Black and African American students, with a focus on the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders. The scholarship will be awarded to one student who is studying with the intent to revolutionize an industry, change social norms, build a long-lasting brand solution in culture, or create opportunities that will support generations to come.
The scholarship funds are intended as an investment in ongoing education: to help the chosen student achieve a personal ambition and subsidize school-related expenses. An ideal applicant would be an undergraduate or graduate level student attending college within the United States, studying with the intent of creating positive, enduring change.
The application asks students to submit a video response to the following questions:
What is your dream for a better world and what CONTRIBUTION will you make toward achieving that dream? Academically, what are you studying? Why have you chosen this path of study? What do you LOVE about it? What makes you exceptional in your chosen field of study? What is it about you that makes you GOOD at it? How will you apply your studies after graduation? Or how are you already applying your studies? How will your ideas CREATE VALUE (e.g., earn money) and yield a solution, such as a business idea, that is built to last? Why are your intended contributions—your creative, social and/or commercial contributions post-graduation—something the world needs more of? How will your idea(s) IMPACT PEOPLE’S LIVES for the better and for the long-term?
The deadline for submission is November 5, and the chosen scholar will be identified on December 17. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
