MVA Junior a Finalist for Cameron Impact Scholarship
Molly Smith, a junior at MVA, has been selected as a finalist for the Cameron Impact Scholarship, which is awarded annually by the Bryan Cameron Education Foundation. According to the website, “The Foundation awards four-year, full-tuition, merit-based undergraduate scholarships to exceptional high school students who have demonstrated excellence in academics, extracurricular activities, leadership, and community service. The Cameron Impact Scholar is unique among their high-achieving peers in their desire to make an impact on their communities and in the world at large. Our Scholar aspires to contribute to positive forces for change and plans to tailor their education to that end.”
Approximately 80-100 finalists from a nationwide pool of 3,000 applicants will be interviewed for the scholarship. Scholars receive a four-year, full tuition scholarship that is intended to cover tuition, fees, course-related expenses, books, supplies, and equipment, and ranges between $20,000 to $50,000 annually to the institution of their choice. Ten to 15 students are awarded the scholarship, which will be announced in December 2019. It would be an incredible opportunity for any student.
Congratulations to Molly for becoming a finalist, recognized for her work in filmmaking. We wish her success in this process!
