Each scholarship has a different purpose for helping students complete the requirements for a degree. The purpose can be as simple as "assisting a student who is pursuing a degree in elementary education." Some donors are interested in assisting students who display academic ability as well as a heart for ministry shown through their participation in extracurricular activities. Keep in mind that restrictive requirements reduce the population of possible recipients. Keep your purpose narrow enough to direct your awards properly but broad enough to allow for multiple applicants.
