Equitable announces 2023 student scholarship winners
May 29, 2023
Two-hundred students, including 24 from California, have been selected as recipients of a 2023 Equitable Excellence Scholarship. Each year, Equitable Foundation recognizes students who do great things through courage, strength and wisdom in pursuing their ambitions.
Equitable Excellence is the flagship program of Equitable Foundation, the company’s charitable-giving arm.
In alignment with Equitable’s own mission of helping people achieve financial security so that they can face the future with confidence, the Equitable Excellence Scholarship places an emphasis on empowering students’ future plans so that they can continue to have positive impacts in their community.
To support students throughout their academic journeys, Equitable provides 100 $5,000 annual scholarships that will be renewed to award recipients each academic year for four years, for a total of $20,000 per recipient. The company also awards 100 one-time $2,500 scholarships that can help students to underwrite immediate costs associated with higher education such as tuition, books or room and board.
The high school of every recipient, regardless of the scholarship amount, will receive a $500 grant.
To make an even bigger impact directly to educators, each recipient is asked to identify a public school teacher who made a significant difference in his or her academic journey. Equitable then provides a $500 DonorsChoose gift card to each educator.
Since 2003, approximately $30 million have been awarded to almost 7,000 students.
