How to Win Scholarship Money

It’s that time of year again to start applying for scholarships! Have you considered the Dream, Innovate, Grow Scholarship?  Each year, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Stouffer Realty Services hosts a scholarship program, open to all high school students in the area who are planning to attend a technical school or college this fall.  The Dream,  Innovate, Grow scholarship is inspired by the key beliefs and attributes Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Stouffer Realty Services has been built on.  The recipients who are chosen also embrace these ideals both personally and academically. 


Each year, three deserving high school students in our sales force footprint will be selected to win a scholarship valued at $1000 a year for up to four years.  These winners will be selected by a committee composed of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Stouffer Realty Services employees and salespersons. 


To be eligible for the Dream, Innovate, Grow Scholarship Program students should excel academically and have an overall grade point average of a 3.0.  The student should also perform with distinction in terms of leadership, volunteerism, character, and positive attitude serving as an example to fellow students as a participant in the community, charity, and other school activities.  The applicants should also embody the traits of Dream, Innovate, and Grow. 


Last year, there was one scholarship winner chosen in Ohio.  Sammy McDonald attended South Range High School and attended Youngstown State University this past fall where he majored in Nursing with a minor in Forensic Science.  Sammy’s desire to become a nurse stemmed from being diagnosed with a rare hip disease when he was young.  After facing multiple surgeries and having to learn how to walk again, Sammy was able to overcome his challenges and channel that into helping others.  


In high school, Sammy was involved in a lot of different extracurricular activities.  He was in the marching band, where he played the alto saxophone.  In his junior year, he was awarded squad leader and was awarded section leader his senior year.  Sammy was also involved in Track, Drama, and Speech and Debate all four years of high school.  Sammy was also President of the National Honor Society.  


All completed applications must be returned by Friday, February 12th, 2021 at 4:00 pm.  For more questions about the Dream, Innovate, Grow Scholarship and to submit your application, please email Scholarships@TPRSold.com.
