Ability Is Nothing without Opportunity

Finally, something that sounds too good to be true, is. There is no catch, there is no downside.

The Bruce Fishkin Scholarship Fund is in search of standouts. Formed in 2010, the Fund effectively eliminates the entire cost of a college education for those outstanding students we believe most deserve an investment of our time and money. We are in search of high school students in their senior year who seek to challenge themselves to succeed and accomplish what most people never imagine. Selection is based upon application essays, followed by personal interviews. Awards are not predicated upon need, but rather on ability, individuality, and potential. We seek students who place a premium on higher education. If you have always known deep inside that given the chance, you'd achieve greatness, well, here is that chance.

The Board anticipates awarding up to six scholarships annually to students that either reside or attend high school in any one of the following areas: Fairfield, Greens Farms, Redding and Westport, Connecticut and the cities and surrounding suburbs of Chicago, Illinois and Las Vegas, Nevada.
