“Shatter the Glass” Scholarship

Brooke Greene, the donor of the “The Shatter the Glass Scholarship” was a first time college student. She worked extremely hard to gain a full scholarship to attend college. There were mounds of support during her freshman year; however, sophomore re-enrollment came with a new set of challenges. Provision of needs outside of college expenses were almost non-existent. It is her desire that finances will not become a barrier for a girl who has the desire and determination to keep going. This scholarship is intended to support those who simply can’t afford the hidden fees that a “scholarship” doesn’t always cover.

Eligibility Requirements:
Must be a graduate of Girl Talk, Inc.
Must be enrolled in post-secondary institution or trade school.
Must be actively employed and/or be enrolled in weekly extracurricular activities

Award Amount: $2,500
This scholarship will be awarded to 2 applicants who will each receive a $2,500 scholarship that will be paid directly to their postsecondary institution.

Application Requirements:
Each applicant must complete an essay (minimum of 500 words) answering the following:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Describe a time in your life when you “dared greatly’? Reflect back on how your successes and perseverance through failures have impacted the person you are today?
