Bryan Cameron Scholarship is intended to cover tuition, fees, course-related expenses, books, supplies, and equipment.
Bryan Cameron Scholarship Description
The Cameron Impact Scholarship will be awarded annually, in December, to approximately 10-15 high-school seniors (applications are due in May and September preceding the awards).
This four-year, merit-based scholarship (“Scholarship”) is intended to cover the full tuition and ‘qualified educational expenses’ (as defined by the Internal Revenue Service) at the recipient’s chosen collegiate institution (estimated to be between $20,000-$50,000 per annum).
Selection Criteria / Eligibility
The Foundation will allocate approximately 25%, or a quarter of the scholarships to individuals pursuing careers in education, nonprofits, government, and/or military and have a stated professional goal of public service.
However, the criterion for the Scholarship is intentionally broad. There are countless ways to make a positive impact in many professional careers (Finance, Education, Healthcare, Technology, Military, Legal, Sports, Engineering and Art to name but a few).
In either the Private or Public Sector, the Cameron Impact Scholar has the ability to make real, tangible contributions in their lifelong dedication to the greater good.
Eligibility for the Bryan Cameron Impact Scholarship is based on the following criteria:
The applicant must:
Prioritize academic excellence (maintaining a minimum cumulative unweighted 3.7 grade point average/4.0 scale or equivalent in their high school studies);
Be a citizen of the United States of America;
Be in the high school graduating Class of 2021, planning to enroll in a full-time course of study toward a bachelor’s degree at an accredited four-year U.S. college or university for the full academic year following high school graduation;
Excel in a broad variety of extracurricular activities. This includes, but is not limited to: athletics, academic clubs, music lessons, performance art, and philanthropic organizations;
Be motivated leaders with a strong work ethic and social acumen. Scholars rise to the occasion and are both candid and confident;

Two (2) required Letters of Recommendation** (these letters MUST be submitted prior to the Application Deadline for an Application to be considered complete), and
Transcript (unofficial is fine) certifying academic performance.

Bryan Cameron Scholarship Selection Process
There are two opportunities to submit the Initial Online Application:
Applications are received on a rolling basis. Please note that a Transcript (unofficial is fine) and two (2) Letters of Recommendation (please submit only two) are required as part of the application process.
These must be completed by the Application Deadline or your submission will not be considered.
The Foundation is limiting the number of new and complete Applications to 3,000, from the Class of 2021. We will make a note on the website and our social media pages if and when this limit is approaching.
The Selection Committee will choose a limited number of Finalists (80-100) for face-to-face interviews (preferably at the Applicant’s high school) before Recipients are announced in December 2020. Interviews will be conducted in the Fall of 2020.
Funds are generally administered directly to the recipient of the award unless other arrangements are made.
If an Applicant who is awarded a Cameron Impact Scholarship receives a significant Financial Aid package through their chosen school, the Foundation will cap the “Tuition and Fees” allotment. Annual renewal of the Cameron Impact Scholarship will be dependent upon continued attendance, good academic standing, and an acceptable code of conduct.
Evidence of misconduct as determined by the Foundation, school, and legal authorities would result in withdrawal of any funds from the Foundation.
Recipients of the Cameron Impact Scholarship are required to attend an annual Cameron Impact Scholars Award Ceremony and Summit for the 4-year duration of the Scholarship. Graduates of the Scholarship program are strongly encouraged to attend this annual event as well.
