CollegeTakeoverTour and DJHeavyness are proud to announce the launch of the “The Refund Check” Scholarship . “The Refund Check” is a leadership based scholarship open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at an academic institution of higher education. The scholarship will be awarded to students who demonstrate leadership roles on campus. The “Refund Check” will be awarded fall semester 2014.
Why the Refund Check?
“I recognize that it’s not easy being a college student these days. Tuition is rapidly rising and the cost of living is high. Many college students are often low on cash. When I was in college, mid-semester was the best time of the year because I received my financial aid refund check. It put some much needed money back into my pocket. As an undergraduate student leader, I remember working long nights on various tasks with my peers to bring awesome social programs to my campus. My college experience makes me intimately familiar with both the highs and lows of student leadership. The work can be fulfilling but also thankless and tiring. I was there once apon a time and I want to give back by helping students with some money to buy books and supplies for classes”
The Refund Check was created to reward the student leader and to assist with buying books or supplies for the semester. Two (2) students will receive one (1) $200 dollar gift card (Amazon or Barnes and Noble) for actively making their campus a better place through leadership.

How can you give back to student leaders or donate?
Currently, we are only able to offer two small awards but hope to increase that amount in the future. As a community we must encourage students to take leadership roles on their campuses. Leadership activities help students develop the skills necessary to tackle the rigors of employment and entrepreneurship.
It’s time to reward student leaders for their commitment and hard work! Please join DJ Heavyness and the #CollegeTakeoverTour in supporting student leaders. We will be accepting donations in the future to grow our fund base to serve more students. We thank you in advance for your contributions!
