onePULSE Foundation Announces First Open Application Period for ‘49 Legacy’ Scholarships


The onePULSE Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit established following the June 12, 2016, shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando to manage the design and construction of a permanent national memorial and museum dedicated to the tragedy, has announced that the application window for the first round of 49 Legacy Scholarships will open on December 1.

Working with the families and loved ones of those killed, the foundation established the scholarships based on individual victims’ interests, careers, and/or aspirations. As an extension of their impact on the world, the scholarships are designed to inspire and empower students who share similar dreams, ambitions. and goals.

Through the program, the foundation will award forty-nine scholarships annually, each up to $10,000, for use at an accredited institution of higher learning, including career and technical schools. The initial round of scholarships will be awarded for use during the 2020-21 academic year.

The foundation will consider a variety of factors when assessing scholarship applicants, including the applicant’s personal story, financial need or independence, academic or self-improvement interest, and track record of leadership, community involvement, and/or work experience.

High school seniors as well as students already enrolled in an institution of higher learning are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who are immediate family members of one of the forty-nine victims, as well as any survivor of the tragedy. Family members and survivors are strongly encouraged to apply.

Scholarship applications are due by January 31, 2020. Scholarship recipients will be notified in the spring of 2020.

Should you have any questions, please contact our Scholarship Program Director, Genelle Kelly at gk@onepulsefoundation.org.
