Deadline for Route 91 Nation Scholarships
Applications are due on May 31 for three separate scholarships offered by Route 91 Nation that range from $500 to $10,000.
The Heroes in the Community Scholarship will be awarded to a first responder or someone who aspires to become a first responder. Each application must contain a copy of college or high school transcripts and two letters of recommendation from community leaders.
The Community Awareness Scholarship will be awarded to a student who is actively involved in the community. All applicants must attend a two-year community college, four-year college or university, or a technical school. Students must maintain an active role in the community for a minimum of five volunteer hours per week.
The Live Like Bailey Memorial Scholarship honors the life and memory of Bailey Dee Schweitzer, who tragically lost her life at the age of 20 at Route 91 (the youngest of the 58 who lost their lives that night). Her favorite role in life was that of auntie to her little niece and nephew. One of her greatest desires was to be a teacher and work with children. This scholarship will be awarded to an individual who wishes to work with children and/or young people in the field of K-12 education.
