Team One Announces Second Annual Legacy Lab Foundation Scholarship Call For Submissions

The Legacy Lab Foundation Set to Recognize a Black Student Leader Focused on Enduring Change

Call for Submissions Now Open Through November 1

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Legacy Lab, Team One’s award-winning think tank and strategic consultancy, is now accepting submissions from students across the country at the undergraduate or graduate level. Launched in 2019, the scholarship aims to support students who represent the next wave of legacy makers, future leaders dedicated to creating lasting and positive change in their communities and beyond. The scholarship awards a future leader $10,000 to put toward school-related expenses.

For this year’s submissions, the Foundation is looking to engage Black and African-American students, specifically next gen entrepreneurs and leaders working towards long-term and sustainable contributions. This year’s scholarship will be awarded to one student who is studying with the intent to revolutionize an industry, change social norms, build a long-lasting brand solution in culture, or create opportunities that will support generations to come.

“We’re honored to kick off this Scholarship program for the second year, continuing our mission to support the next generation of leaders,” said Mark Miller, Chief Strategy Officer at Team One and Founder of The Legacy Lab. “We are at a tipping point and the current demand for systemic change in our country is at an all-time high, and young leaders and activists are some of the most important voices right now. It’s our goal to support these young leaders on their quest to create lasting change.”

Scholarship funds are intended as an investment in ongoing education: to help a student achieve a personal ambition and subsidize school-related expenses. An ideal applicant would be an undergraduate or graduate level student attending college within the United States, studying with the intent of creating positive, enduring change. The application asks students to submit a video response to the following questions:

  • What is your dream for a better world and what CONTRIBUTION will you make toward achieving that dream?
  • Academically, what are you studying? Why have you chosen this path of study? What do you LOVE about it?
  • What makes you exceptional in your chosen field of study? What is it about you that makes you GOOD at it?
  • How will you apply your studies after graduation? Or how are you already applying your studies? How will your ideas CREATE VALUE (e.g., earn money) and yield a solution, such as a business idea, that is built to last?
  • Why are your intended contributions—your creative, social and/or commercial contributions post-graduation—something the world needs more of? How will your idea(s) IMPACT PEOPLE’S LIVES for the better and for the long-term?

Team One and The Legacy Lab Foundation recently announced last year’s scholarship winner, Isabelle Hall, a recent graduate from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business. With a Master of Science in Social Entrepreneurship, Hall will use her business skills as a force for good. She aspires to create effective sustainable business models that strike a balance between upholding a social mission, while maximizing the productivity (and profitability) of the venture to ensure that impact can be sustained. Hall specifically plans to work in areas of gender inequality, poverty, and mental health.

This Scholarship is powered by The Giving Back Fund, an LA-based nonprofit that facilitates charitable giving. More information on The Legacy Lab Foundation Scholarship and application requirements can be found at:
