One Comment on “December 2020 DoSomething Scholarships

  1. Hello, do you have any ideas? Brooke, my daughter was in process of applying for a scholarship and wrote an essay for it, but now we cannot find the scholarship application site to finish the application.

    The questions to be answered in the essay were:

    How has your education impacted you? How do you hope college will impact your future?

    Do you have any ideas on how to find that scholarship?

    Thank you. Elaine Anderson
