Ethical input is being sought from area high school juniors to apply for the Students of Integrity Scholarship offered by The Center for Ethics at BBB. Applicants will read, evaluate and then write what they would do based on an ethical situation presented.
“Without giving too much away, the scenario is something students are able to relate to and able to put themselves in the situation,” explained Erika Lehman, executive director for the Center. “Judges then assess how the student arrived at their ethical solution in the essay. So if there are any juniors out there who would love to solve an ethical problem and try for a scholarship, we encourage them to apply.”
SOI honors high school juniors in BBB’s 20-county service area and awards up to four $1,000 scholarships which can be used toward any secondary education program. The SOI Scholarship is open to high school juniors expecting to graduate in the 2014-15 academic year and reside in BBB Cincinnati’s 20-county service area.
All hard copy essay submissions must be received by The Center for Ethics at BBB no later than 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 16. A completed “Cover Sheet” must accompany your submission and must be signed by a parent or legal guardian, unless the applicant is 18-years-old at the time of submission.
Essay submissions may be mailed or hand-delivered to: The Center for Ethics at BBB, Attn: Students of Integrity Scholarship Essay Submission, 7 West Seventh St., Suite 1600 Cincinnati, OH. 45202
