With a majority of scholarships having a deadline that has already passed, students often forget about other scholarship possibilities later in the year.

The 17th annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast with Benedictine University that was held last year was a success with a whole ballroom of people in attendance.

The Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. scholarship for $1,000 has only had three students start the application with no one marked down as applied as of Nov. 9.

According to Community Relations Specialist of Marketing Rebecca Gavillet, the college posted the scholarship a month ago and is surprised no one has completed an application.

“We want to encourage students to apply, we don’t want the money to go to waste,” Gavillet said.

Last year’s MLK breakfast with Benedictine is posted on the college’s website along with photos from the event.

To apply for the scholarship, go on to Tuition & Aid then click “Scholarships”.

Complete a STARS application thoroughly to be eligible for the MLK award by December 7.

All winners will attend the breakfast at Benedictine and present a reading from their essay.
