Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship

The I Could Do Great Things Foundation was created with 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.

This year the I Could Do Great Things Foundation has created an award in loving memory of Beau Biden. This scholarship, in the amount of $10,000, will be given 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 will 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 on icoulddogreatthings.org. 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 20, 2017 and interviews will be held for the finalists in April. The selection team will consist of members from the Biden family and the winner will be announced in late April. If you have any questions, please email us at info@icoulddogreathings.com.

Applications can be sent by mail to PO Box 4406, Greenville, Delaware 19807 or emailed to info@icoulddogreathings.com.
