2018 Rashaw Scott Youth Scholarship
The Healing Justice Alliance (HJA) seeks to amplify the voices of youth at our conference and in our work. Young people are actively involved in this work today and will be leaders of this violence prevention movement tomorrow. To that end we are inviting scholarship applications for this year’s conference September 12-14, in Denver, Colorado

We are looking for youth between the ages of 14-24, who are committed and passionate about breaking the cycle of violence. Those selected will be reimbursed up to $900 for the conference registration, transportation, and hotel with the submission of original receipts. The scholarship recipient must have a professional mentor who is accompanying them to the conference. That mentor will assume responsibility for arranging the young person’s travel and, in the case of youth under 18, for obtaining parent/guardian consent for participation. Parts or all of the essays submitted (with credit given to the author) may be reprinted. Scholarship recipient(s) will also be asked to read some or their entire essay at the conference.

To apply, please answer the following questions in an essay not to exceed 700 words and a upload a picture of the nominee and complete this application form by Friday, May 25, 2018, 11:59 PM PST.

ABOUT RASHAW SCOTT
Rashaw Scott was a Baltimore City native. He joined the Violence Prevention Programs (VPP) in 2013 after a violent incident that gravely impacted his life. He volunteered many hours speaking to youth at schools and medical centers about healthy decision making and the destructive effects of violence. Although he tragically lost his life in July 2017, HJA remembers the powerful impact that Rashaw had on this community, by recognizing other resilient and inspirational young leaders who are having an impact on theirs.
