We are pleased to announce our 2024 Equitable Excellence Scholarship® application period is now open and will be active until December 18th, 2023, 3:00 p.m. CST. This year, Equitable Foundation has a renewed focus to recognize students who demonstrate ambition and self-drive to be a force for good in their school, local community, or work activities.
In alignment with Equitable’s own mission of helping people achieve financial security so that they can face the future with confidence, the Equitable Excellence Scholarship® places an emphasis on empowering students’ future plans so that they can continue to have positive impacts in their community.
To support students throughout their academic journeys, Equitable will provide 100 $5,000 annual scholarships that will be renewed to award recipients each academic year for four years, for a total of $20,000 per recipient. The company will also award 100 one-time $2,500 scholarships that can help students to underwrite immediate costs associated with higher education such as tuition, books or room and board.
As the largest 403(b) provider for educators across the country, we realize that our clients are facing hardships inside the classroom. To make an even bigger impact directly to educators, we ask each recipient to identify a teacher who made a significant difference in his or her academic career. To express our gratitude, Equitable will provide a $500 gift card to each identified educator to help combat rising costs within their classroom.
