No Minimum GPA Required for Unique Higher Education Opportunity
The program's mission is to provide graduating seniors from qualifying school districts in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas with the financial resources needed to pursue avenues of education.
Applicants must demonstrate a financial need and can attend any accredited two- or four-year college or university; or technical/trade school. One of the unique aspects of this scholarship program is that no minimum GPA or test score is required. Applications will be taken until February 1, 2023, at 11:59 PM EST.
Those students chosen for the scholarship will be granted up to $12,500. Since the inception of the scholarship in 2020, the Esler Companies Door of Opportunity scholarship fund has awarded $1.5 million to 121 deserving students.
"Students have been exposed to so much recently, whether through social movements or economic struggles. We are encouraged by the passion and drive of our past applicants. They are now using their experiences to move forward into positions that will ultimately help their communities," says Matt Esler, CEO of Esler Companies. "This is exactly why we at Esler Companies created this scholarship program - to create a lasting impact on underrepresented young adults in the areas we serve. We are able to provide the financial resources needed to help students reach their full potential and influence generations to come."
Door of Opportunity Scholars are chosen for exemplifying self-reliance, positivity, persistence, and a passion for contributing to the world. Past recipients say the scholarship has been lifechanging.
"I have been homeless for more than 3 years. The Door of Opportunity scholarship helped me pay for my dorm. Now I don't have to worry about where I am going to sleep," says Ernesto Jacobo, Door of Opportunity Scholarship recipient. "My bed is the best thing in my life and I'm proud that I got the chance to experience college and live in the community. Click here to download a photo of Ernesto outside the dorm he now calls home.
"Door of Opportunity has invested in my future, and I return this favor by investing in the community, says Daniella Sirleaf, who plans to create a free mentoring program for youth in her hometown. "The young people in my community are encapsulated by violence, and attaining a degree is their only way to escape. I plan to be a compass to navigate kids on a path of excellence and propel my community towards greatness.
