PAY IT FORWARD SCHOLARSHIP
HOW IT WORKS
The student will receive $5,000.00 through the Pay It Forward Scholarship to cover for any additional cost that is not being covered with the scholarships or financial aid they have received so far.
The student is then expected to pay 50% of the scholarship back in a period of 5 years, which means they will pay First Serve $500 for 5 years once they are settled in a stable job.
The money that the student pays back will be used to provide another Pay It Forward Scholarship to current First Serve mentors. From there, the cycle continues!
To be eligible for the First Serve Pay It Forward Scholarship you must submit an official copy of your high school transcript, one (1) letter of recommendation from an adult that is not a family member and answers to the following essay questions:
In what ways has First Serve impacted your life for the better or encouraged you in your future personal and professional endeavors?
• What would this money be used for and how would it help you on your path forward in life?
• In terms of aiding the future generations of First Serve students, what would you say to students to encourage them on their own path?
The deadline to apply is March 15, 2021 and you will be notified of the results by April 15, 2021. To submit, please email all application materials to
