Provide support to full-time students with financial need to complete their undergraduate education

Leopold Schepp Foundation Scholarships provide support to full-time college and university students who may otherwise have insufficient means to obtain or complete their formal education. Scholarships typically range according to individual need, and approximately 200 scholarships are awarded annually.

Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, currently enrolled (or about to enroll) full-time in an undergraduate or graduate degree program, and maintaining a GPA of at least 3.2 on a four-point scale. Undergraduate applicants must be under the age of 30 at the time of application, and graduate student applicants must be under the age of 40. Support can be renewed each year upon reapplication.

In addition to academic ability, candidates must demonstrate good character, and the foundation ordinarily prefers to award scholarships to individuals with goals that show promise of future benefit to society. The foundation requires all candidates to undertake a personal interview at its offices in New York City.

There is not a specific deadline for submitting a Request for an Application. The cutoff is automatically imposed when a sufficient number of requests have been received.
