LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville is funding a $10,000 scholarship open to students around the world.
The center says the Generation Ali Global Citizenship Scholarship Program will give 15 students a chance to continue their education. Eight awards will be for U.S. students, including two local recipients, and seven for international students. The local awards will be designated as Ina Brown Bond Scholars.
Recipients will be asked to discuss their essay topics at the Ali Center and host an online forum for a year through the center's website.
The selection process will look at financial need, demonstrated ability to overcome obstacles, academic qualifications and responses to two essay questions. The application is available at http://www.generationali.org , and the deadline is Jan. 15.
