Make Waves Scholarship Fund

The Make Waves Scholarship

The Scholarship for supporting GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS

Shaping the success of future generations

The increasingly expensive cost of education calls for a solution to keep more students in school and graduating.

What the Scholarship provides

Up to $1,000 in financial aid

Students will receive up to $1,000 in financial aid each semester until graduation to help alleviate financial stresses. The money is for the students and does not have to be paid back.

Job opportunities at Fresh Catch

By participating in the Make Waves scholarship, internship opportunities can open up at Fresh Catch, a local Buffalo poke restaurant, for students.

Access to network

Students will be able to connect with other students and supporters who are also participating in the Makes Waves scholarship.
