Central to the work that we do with students is the belief and understanding that our students are capable of leaving behind positive and impactful legacies—in their leadership chapters, their high schools, and broader communities. The HoPe Legacy Scholarship is intended to recognize the hard work, personal aspirations, and the life-long legacy yet to be created by HoPe members. 

This scholarship opportunity is made a reality thanks to the support of community partners who wish to pour into the work we do with high school students, their families, and our communities. It is with the support of many of our partners, parents, educators, and community members that we are able to empower students to leave behind their own legacies in their schools and beyond.
