This fund was created by Julie Smolyansky, President & CEO of Lifeway Foods, and Edward Smolyansky, CFO of Lifeway Foods.

Undergraduate applicants must plan to begin or continue post-secondary education on a full-time basis in a college, university, or technical school in the upcoming academic year.
