To many, Beau Biden was a man who embodied selflessness, service and inspired a foundation dedicated to protecting children.

In the past four years since his death, students have been awarded college scholarships in reward for exemplifying  “the virtues of Beau: qualities of leadership, community, civility, respect, and a strong moral compass.”

The Delaware based I Can Do Great Things Foundation established the Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship in 2015 for graduating high school students. The foundation, founded by philanthropists Stuart and Suzanne Grant in 2009, provides funding for projects “that can improve the life of one individual, one community or the entire world.”

This year the I Can Do Great Things Foundation awarded $25,000 in scholarships to four students.
