uKnighted Knights Honor Scholarship | $2,500

uKnighted awards a generous one-time $2,500 scholarship to a graduating senior who exemplifies commendable moral character, maintains a strong academic standing, and actively engages in volunteer work within the community. This scholarship serves as a recognition of the individual’s dedication not only to their academic pursuits but also to making a positive impact beyond the classroom. The funding for this scholarship is derived entirely from the proceeds generated by the Knights Bookstore. By directing all profits from the bookstore towards this scholarship initiative, uKnighted reinforces its commitment to supporting education and fostering a sense of community service among graduating seniors. This approach not only benefits the deserving recipient but also reflects the organization’s dedication to contributing to the educational and moral development of its community members.
