COMICS FOR COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP FUND
What Is the Comics for College Scholarship Fund?
Proceeds from all purchases made with Hops & Heroes online or at conventions help us create scholarships for financially disadvantaged students attending a two-year, four-year, or trade school who need additional assistance.
Who qualifies for the scholarships?
Anyone who is currently enrolled for, or will be enrolled by the start of the semester the scholarship is being awarded for. Hops & Heroes Scholarship committee does not discriminate based on race, color, religious creed, national origin, ancestry, sex, sexual orientation, age, genetic information, military service, or disability.
How do I apply?
Our scholarship application period will begin in March 2019. You will be able to fill out and submit the application on this website. From there our Scholarship Advisory Board will review the applications and will make their selections. Presentation of the awards will occur prior to the beginning of the Fall 2019 semester. Subscribe to our newsletter so that you don't miss out on the announcements regarding our scholarship application period.
Why create your own scholarship fund instead of simply donating to other charities?
Education has always been important to the team at Hops & Heroes, and we wanted the chance to not only determine where and how the funding was used, but also to make those resources and awards available to the people in our community, the comic community, who may not qualify for the financial assistance opportunities that are available elsewhere. By creating our own scholarship fund, we can bring hope and inspiration into our world, just like the superheroes we love to read about do.
