HEATHER BROOKE PETERSEN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP

 
 

The Heather Brooke Petersen International Scholarship is for university and graduate students in developing countries who are determined to help the world "keep moving forward". The overall goal of the program is two fold: 1) to further Heather's dream to teach and bless the lives of others and 2) to provide opportunity to "amazing" individuals who have the same desire to bless the world as Heather but who lack the financial means to do so.

In many developing countries, the cost of education can easily overwhelm a family unit. Each year, thousands of students are forced to drop out of school to help provide for their families once tuition gets too high. The cost to these students can be crippling, but the USD equivalent totals only a fraction of the price of an American degree. By funding students in these impoverished regions, the HBP International Scholarship will empower some of the world's brightest minds from the world's most vulnerable populations to create the future that Heather dreamt of.

Eligibility for the HBP International Scholarship will be determined based on financial need, academic merit, and an essay submission detailing the student's vision for the future and how their desired program will enable them to make the world a better place. The money will be used to cover the cost of the recipient's tuition, lab and textbook fees, and living expenses (as the situation requires). Accountability will be required from the student at the end of each semester via a written essay documenting what she/he has learned and how it will apply in their future service to their community.
