    Life Lessons Scholarship
    Description:
    The loss of a parent or guardian is one of life's most difficult ordeals. The emotional strain can be devastating to children and young adults. And for too many families, an untimely death also brings financial stress, making recovery all the more difficult.

    A college education is already a major financial challenge for most American families, but it becomes infinitely more difficult for a student when a parent dies, leaving little or no life insurance.

    Life insurance is an important financial safety net that parents can leave their families. Unfortunately 95 million Americans don't have life insurance, and most with coverage have far less than recommended.

    Recognizing the character and perseverance that so many young people show in the face of such adversity, Life Happens sponsors the annual Life Lessons Scholarship Program for college students and college-bound high school seniors. Qualified entrants who submit essays or videos about how the death of a parent impacted their lives are eligible for scholarship money. Nearly $900,000 in college scholarships have been awarded over the years. The total of scholarships for the 2014 Program is $175,000, and will be allocated in the following amounts:

    • Grand Prize Scholarship Winners Essay (1): $15,000
    • Board of Directors Scholarship Essay or Video (1): $10,000
    • Essay Scholarships
      • First Runners-Up (3): $7,500
      • Second Runners-Up (5): $5,000
      • Third Runners-Up (22): $2,000

    • Video Scholarships
      • First Runners-Up (2): $7,500
      • Second Runners-Up (4): $5,000
      • Third Runners-Up (8): $2,000
    Eligibility:
    The Life Lessons Scholarship Program is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, who are between 17 and 24 years of age, have experienced the death of a parent or legal guardian, and are currently enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a college, university or trade school within the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia or Puerto Rico. Employees of Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education (Life Happens or Sponsor), Weber Shandwick, and their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and advertising, and promotion agencies, and any such employees immediate family members (spouse, parent, child, sibling and their respective spouses) and those living in their same households, whether or not related, are not eligible to enter or win a scholarship. A minor should have a parents or legal guardians permission to enter. Void where prohibited by law. The Scholarship Program is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws.

    Applications will be open in February.
