The DirectionalMotivation.com scholarship program is designed to provide assistance to individuals seeking to better themselves through the pursuit of additional education, whether at the college, vocational or personal development level. After receiving the completed application, scholarships are awarded through a random computerized selection process. Scholarship checks will be written jointly to the award recipient and their school of choice, prior to the start of the semester. Recipients are eligible for only one scholarship in a calendar year period. However, we do encourage individuals to reapply, after the one year time frame has passed. Although scholarships are awarded under a grant basis with no requirement for repayment, we strongly encourage award winners to return this funding when their own financial position is strengthened. By applying the "Pay it Forward" philosophy, funds may be redistributed to others who may benefit in the future.
