Unyts has announced that 12 high school seniors will receive college scholarships in recognition of their commitment to the Donate Life mission. Two students will also receive book scholarships from the Ali's Rally Foundation, which supports Unyts’ educational programs to raise awareness of the need for organ, eye, tissue, and blood donation.
The purpose of the Unyts scholarship is to recognize those students who have gone above and beyond the call to action for their Donate Life Club, Unyts, and their community. Students were asked to write a one page essay about how Unyts impacted their lives and how they will continue to spread our mission.
