Scholarships Option 2
The Harry S. Himmel Scholarship was established in Harry’s memory in 1989 by friends and family. Himmel joined Kiwanis in 1928 and eventually served in many leadership positions at various levels—including president of the Kiwanis International Foundation for 10 years. Harry was known for his extensive involvement in his community and in charitable causes, and for the impact he made on so many individuals. This scholarship remains in his memory to help young people achieve their goals.
Amount awarded: US$500
I think this scholarship is a great fit for me! As a Key Clubber who is currently serving as the Lt Governor for Division 10 - W and also looking to serve in higher positions, I think I qualify. Not only that, but I am an active member of my community, frequently get involved, and am creating a 5K to raise money for the Eliminate Project. As a student who services his community as much as I can, I think that applying for this scholarship would be a good use of my time.
The Gloria Barron Prize honors young leaders who have made a significant and positive difference to people and the planet. If you're between the ages of 8 and 18 and have led and organized a "truly extraordinary service activity," you may want to ask a teacher, adviser, or counselor to consider nominating you for a chance to win a $2,500 scholarship.
This scholarship is very specific, but I am currently creating a 5K aimed to raising money for the Eliminate Project. I hope to attract about 300 people to my event and raise about $7500. I know plenty of teachers who will be participating, and I doubt they would have a problem nominating me. It’s also simple because it only requires a nomination!

I love it. As a student interested in both domestic and international policy, and someone who believes that peace is the best way to attain a more innovative world, I think I can do the a good job of writing the essay. It's heavily important to me that I promote world peace through my debate positions in the Junior State of America and in discussions with people on world policy. I also love writing. It's a passion of mine. This scholarship fits my personality really well!
