To apply for the scholarship, students are asked to write a two-page essay on the following topic:

In your opinion, what has been the biggest victory for individual liberties in the last decade? What has been the biggest blow dealt to individual liberties in the last decade?

All applicants must have a grade point average of at least 3.2 and complete an application, which includes the above essay question.

To be eligible, a student’s parents must have earned less than $125,000 in income in 2018 (or the last filed income tax statement), and the student must plan to attend a four-year degree program in business, economics, political science, public administration or a related field, at an accredited college or university.
