Award Amount

The amount of each award is determined on a case-by-case basis. Multiple students receive scholarships in the first round, which are given at the end of the summit week, and the total number of students selected dictates how much each student will receive. The sum of all first-round scholarships is $10,000. The second round of scholarship awards can also be given to multiple students or to only one student. It is comprised of $20,000 and involves a second application, available to the participants after they complete the summit. This scholarship is referred to as the Grand Scholarship.


The number of awards offered varies annually, but typically ranges between 10 and 15.
