2022 Scholarship Application Form
The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights welcomes applications for its 2022 Upstander C.A.R.E. (Compassion, Acceptance, Respect, Empathy) Scholarship. Each year, graduating Idaho high school students will be honored with cash scholarships up to $3,000 for taking action to create positive change in their communities.
These young individual(s) will be honored as upstanders – those who recognize a wrong and take action to make it right. While being an upstander is a shared responsibility, each winner’s achievement(s) will display a remarkable choice to combat intolerance, prejudice, and injustice and make a constructive contribution(s) in reshaping his/her world.
Emphasis will be given to accomplishment(s) that exhibit sustainable acts of compassion, acceptance, respect, and empathy toward others. The Wassmuth Center strives to encourage young activists and inspires each of us to become an advocate for change.
Completed application packages are due on or before April 15, 2022.
