In celebrating the passion Donté Hawkins had for assisting fellow students to achieve their educational goals, we are Delivering More Help to students by offering an annual, needs-based scholarship for college books to further their education.
This scholarship, inspired by Donté, motivated his mother, Monica Hawkins, to honor Donté’s life after his murder in May, 2012. The DMH Scholarship Fund now perpetuates his passion for helping others. This book scholarship is open to all incoming and current college students for help with purchasing books. The application process opens in January and closes March 31, 2017 at Midnight, MST.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord,
thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
A Legacy of Success
The D.M.H. Scholarship was first awarded in May 2013. Since then, recipients have gone on to experience successful college careers, studied abroad, and are able to now walk closer toward their dreams.
Growth of the D.M.H. Scholarship Fund
In three years, the applications for this scholarship have increased over 5200%! The increase in the number of applications shows that there is a substantial need for what we offer through this scholarship. Our goal is to increase the number of scholarships we can award, allowing us to deliver more help to more students.
You Can Deliver More Help
We are committed to working with high schools, colleges, universities, and churches to identify students who need assistance in fulfilling their goal to succeed in continuing their education. If you know of a student or an organization who could benefit from this scholarship, please pass this information on to them.
We are always looking for corporate and individual sponsors to join us in Delivering More Help. We are seeking financial support as well as volunteers to come alongside us and help with the scholarship as well as the annual gala.
