The Cognella Cares Student Scholarship Program was established to provide students with a platform to speak to current issues that matter to them, highlight experiences that are unique to higher education, and share ideas from today’s youth that can inspire social, political, and intellectual change.
For Fall 2020/Spring 2021, we’re looking for three outstanding students in any discipline of study who are inspired to share their unique thoughts, experiences, and ideas for change surrounding one of the following topics:
- Pandemics and the future of online learning

To apply, submit an 800 – 1,500-word essay on one of the above topics using the form provided in the Submit an Essay section below.
