The purpose of the Amanda Reed Memorial Scholarship is to provide educational resources for graduating seniors within Boone, Stephenson, and Winnebago County who have a commitment to ending teen dating violence and/or domestic abuse. Applicants must answer the essay prompt: "How have you addressed the problem of domestic violence, and what impact has your work had in your community?"
Applicants must: be a graduate or graduating senior from a public or private high school located within Boone, Ogle, Stephenson or Winnebago County; have a minimum GPA of 2.5/4.0; reflect Amanda’s compassionate and caring nature; and demonstrate a commitment to domestic violence prevention in their school or the wider community through volunteering, advocacy, projects, or other activities. Strong preference will be given to applicants who provide a reference from someone familiar with their work in domestic violence prevention, such as a volunteer site supervisor. Dollar amounts will vary.
