The Blue Eyes, Big Heart Scholarship was created in memory of a remarkable young man named Joshua Alderton who tragically passed away in a car accident on July 25, 2013. Josh had a larger than life personality and a passion for volunteering. His charitable spirit truly knew no bounds and this scholarship is intended to help people who have been affected by domestic violence pursue their educational goals. Josh was dedicated to breaking the chain of violence in his own community and we believe that by helping women and children affected by domestic violence pursue higher education we can carry on his legacy.
The first scholarship was awarded in 2014 .
