Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship 2020

The I Could Do Great Things Foundation is based on the belief that there are lots of young people who could do Great Things if only they had the financial wherewithal to fund those ideas.

In 2016, the I Could Do Great Things Foundation created an award in loving memory of Beau Biden. This scholarship, in the amount of $10,000, was created to provide financial assistance to a Delaware high school senior who plans to continue his or her education at a university of his or her choice, and who embodies the virtues of Beau. Beau Biden was a selfless man who exhibited qualities of leadership, community, civility, respect, and a strong moral compass. The recipient of the Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship must be a high school senior who embodies these qualities and leads a life with the same valor as Beau did.

The application for the Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship is available here.  A student can nominate himself or herself describing why that student should receive the scholarship and how they embody the virtues of Beau. The application requires answers to three short essay questions and two letters of recommendations.

Applications are due by March 31, 2020 and interviews will be held for the finalists in April. Winners will be announced in late April. If you have any questions, please email us at

Applications can be sent by mail to PO Box 4406, Greenville, Delaware 19807 or emailed to
