- Scholarship Description
Created in honor of George Keown (GK), GK Legacy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization helping Arizona residents, age 25 and older, better their lives through education. George was the epitome of perseverance and determination, and it is our mission to honor him in a way that represents those attributes. "Keep your chin up, kid" was his favorite thing to say whenever we faced adversity (he said it so often we teased him for it as we grew older). Now, those words are sacred to us, and we are using them to inspire others. Throughout their generosity, the GK Legacy Foundation is offering a scholarship.
The Keep Your Chin Up Scholarship Fund is a non-traditional scholarship for Arizona residents age 25 and older. Applicants must have a high school diploma or GED but not prior Bachelor's Degree, be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, demonstrate financial need and prove school enrollment. Awards will range between $500 to $5,000 and award recipients will be chosen based on need, merit and answers to essay questions. Scholarship cycles occur in February and September of each year.
