What is the Transformations Scholarship?
Project PAVE's annual Transformations Scholarship recognizes personal transformation, and honors youth attending schools where PAVE does work who are making, positive contributions towards ending the cycle of relationship violence by raising awareness and empowering themselves and others in their schools and community. Through the scholarship process, we hope to empower more youth to take a stand against relationship violence, and encourage youth to continue their activist work in post-secondary education and beyond.
What are examples of personal transformation related to relationship violence and/or actions taken to break the cycle of relationship violence?
Applicants must answer essay questions about their work to break the cycle of relationship violence. There are countless ways to be part of the movement to prevent violence in our community. We want to hear about the innovative and positive ways that you are impacting yourself and/or community! Here are some examples of actions that help reduce relationship violence:
