onePULSE Foundation 49 Legacy Scholarship

When 49 lives were taken, 49 legacies began. Our mission is to create academic opportunities – honoring the aspirations of all 49 Angels – to recipients who embody love, hope, unity, courage and unconditional acceptance. Legacy Scholarship Recipients are ambassadors of the 49 Angels and the onePULSE Foundation.

Any person – no matter age, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability or faith – is welcome to apply.

onePULSE Foundation considers many factors when assessing scholarship applicants, including:

  • Personal story
  • Financial need
  • A proven track record of leadership, community involvement and/or work experience
  • Working for the betterment of the community
  • Strong academic or self-improvement interest

Preference will be given to applicants who are immediate family members of a Pulse Angel and those who are survivors of and first responders to the Pulse tragedy.
