Scholarship 2018

APPLICATION FOR SCHOLARSHIP

Zoe Brooke Loren graced our family and community for sixteen short years. We were privileged and blessed to have a child who was gracious, was a loyal friend, spread laughter wherever she went, and generously doled out love and gratitude. Zoe was involved in many service activities, and her hope was to make an impact on the world beyond herself.

The Zoe Loren Make a Difference Foundation was born from our grief as a way to celebrate her beautiful life. The foundation will continue Zoe’s commitment to making a difference, and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

The primary mission of the Zoe Loren Make a Difference Foundation is to honor Zoe’s life by providing educational opportunities to deserving students.

The Scholarship award will be $4,000.00. The scholarship will be disbursed in two parts: $2,000.00 will be sent directly to your college before the Fall and Spring semesters of your first year. The student will provide the Foundation with the contact information for the bursar’s office of their college. The Foundation will then send the funds directly to the student’s school.
