The YouthCon Scholarship is hosted by AASuccess, a Falls Church-based nonprofit dedicated to empowering the youth to gain confidence while fostering leadership skills by living our motto of “perfecting the act of giving back”. Our scholarship allows innovative high school and middle school students living in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area with ideas to be actively involved with philanthropic work to make a difference in neighborhoods, with the support of AASuccess. We award innovative and driven students with the mindsets of giving back, and those seeking to strengthen their skills such as writing, presentation, and leadership.
Applicants must be either Maryland, Virginia, or Washington DC state resident; be a current high school or middle school students; maintain a minimum 2.75 cumulative high school GPA on a 4.0 scale (unweighted) through the fall quarter/semester. If the student is a senior in high school, he/she must plan to enroll or actually be enrolled full-time as a college student (12 credits per quarter or equivalent for the fall semester) and be able to attend the YouthCon Award Ceremony.
