The deadline to apply for the David Malcolm Scholarship is fast approaching. All applications must be submitted by June 30, 2022.
This $2,500 scholarship, sponsored by San Diego philanthropist David Malcolm, is given to a student who has overcome obstacles to educational achievement and requires help to continue on the path to success.
To be eligible for the David Malcolm Scholarship, applicants must be high school seniors who have already been accepted into an accredited university or college or be current students already enrolled full-time at an accredited university or college. Applicants also must have a minimum GPA of 3.5.
Along with a basic form, students must submit an essay that highlights a current obstacle they are facing and explain how the David Malcolm Scholarship would help them overcome it. The essay, which shouldn’t exceed 1,000 words, should also emphasize how higher education will help the applicant become an inspirational success story.
After all submissions to the David Malcolm Scholarship are reviewed after the June 30 deadline, one candidate will be selected as the 2022 recipient sometime in July.
The recipient will be notified via email and have two weeks to accept the scholarship. The David Malcolm Scholarship committee may request additional information, including documentation to support the information submitted with the recipient’s application.
