Leopold Schepp Foundation

The Foundation grants awards each year to both full time undergraduate students enrolled in four year bachelor programs and to full time graduate students. Applicants must be currently enrolled at an accredited college or university or be high school seniors applying for acceptance into college.

Awards are based on academic ability, character, and demonstrated financial need.

The Foundation also grants a small number of fellowship awards for independent study and research, usually post-doctoral, based on the recommendation of a recognized institution. These fellowships are intended to encourage research that will improve the general welfare of mankind. Because funds for such grants are limited, interested applicants should inquire as to the availability of funding for fellowships in their chosen field of study.
