The Future Leaders Scholarship, which launched last year, seeks to help empower tomorrow’s leaders to make a positive impact on their communities by providing greater access to higher education.

This year, we will provide five new students each with a $5,000 fall quarter tuition reimbursement, reflecting our commitment to provide $100,000 in financial support to 20 students over four years.

“Our 2018 scholarship winners were an outstanding group of students, and this year we’re excited to continue to invest in the next generation of problem solvers, innovators and future leaders,” said senior partner Erik Morgan.

Application Details

The application is now live on our scholarship page. All graduating high school seniors, or current undergraduate college students enrolled full-time in an accredited two-year, four-year, technical college or university are eligible to apply.

The deadline to submit applications is Monday, April 1, 2019.

We are calling all students who are committed to improving their communities, involved in meaningful extracurricular activities, and who possess an entrepreneurial spirit to apply. The full application, eligibility details, policies and FAQ are available on our scholarship page.

If you know a student in Washington, Oregon or California who might benefit from our scholarship, please share this blog post and encourage them to apply. Please note that previous award recipients, along with Freestone employees, partners and their families, are not eligible to apply.

Our five inaugural recipients were exemplary students who stood apart from hundreds of highly qualified applicants thanks to their outstanding community involvement, aptitude and entrepreneurial skillsets. We can’t wait to learn about and meet this year’s candidate pool.

In the words of our founder Gary Furukawa: “The individuals we got to know through our inaugural scholarship set a high bar for future applicants, and we look forward to supporting five new students in achieving their educational goals and making an impact on their communities.”
