The Mr. Checkout Wholesale Distributors Scholarship
We created a financial award that is very flexible, so Scholars can use their award money for the many costs that arise during their college career. We are constantly evolving our program to serve our Scholars all the way to college graduation.
Today, the Mr. Checkout Wholesale Distributors Scholarship offers multifaceted support to our Scholars that extends beyond the financial support. We offer students and their families opportunities, connections and solutions to address individual and systemic issues that can create major barriers to student success.
And our approach is working. Scholars with a scholarship are 25 percent more likely to earn their bachelor’s degrees within four to six years of high school graduation compared to students of similar backgrounds.
Earn a minimum of a 2.1 GPA
Our minimum GPA is only 2.1 because we realize that a student’s grades are not the only factor and do not determine that student’s potential for success in their lives.
Graduate From High School
Highly motivated students who are better than their numbers indicate and demonstrate the drive to succeed despite personal obstacles.
Plans to enroll full-time
Plan to enroll full-time at an accredited higher education institution in the pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in the fall directly following high school graduation.
OUR GPA: GRIT, POTENTIAL & AMBITION
While we have a required 2.4 grade point average, the Mr. Checkout Wholesale Distributors Scholarship targets highly motivated students who are better than their numbers indicate and demonstrate the drive to succeed despite personal obstacles. Our Scholars have demonstrated a unique “GPA” of grit, potential, and ambition in their quest for a college education:
Grit by overcoming personal challenges in their lives related to their families, schools, or communities. Potential by participating in college readiness programs and seeking out academic rigor. Ambition by dreaming of obtaining a college degree.
