The Silicon Valley Chapter has a strong legacy of supporting local students as they strive to secure their future through a college education. Each year, many local sponsors donate to the BYUMS Scholarship Fund, which is apportioned to local LDS students to attend the school of their choice. The application process includes two essays about how the student has been a moral leader already and how he or she hopes to be an ethical influencer throughout his or her career. We awarded scholarships to over 20 local students in 2015 and hope to help even more students in 2016!
