Youth Foundation’s basic objective is the awarding of Hadden Scholarships to exceptionally worthy, financially needy, secondary school seniors for their undergraduate college education. The Scholarship Committee selects the recipients after carefully evaluating character, scholastic records, financial need, extra-curricular activities and community service. No scholarship is given to a student unless his or her college has agreed to refrain from reducing its own scholarship grant at the expense of the Youth Foundation’s award. Youth Foundation encourages young people to establish permanent attitudes of self-reliance, confidence, self-discipline, responsibility, volunteerism, and exemplary character thereby benefiting their own lives, and more importantly, the lives of others.Website
