Empowering VoicesCongratulations to our 2024 scholarship recipient, find out more about our previous winners here!

At Tomeny Best, we believe in the power of voices to create meaningful change and drive progress. Inspired by individuals who have fearlessly spoken out in support of causes they believe in, we are proud to introduce the Empowering Voices Scholarship.

We want to hear your story, regardless of the cause. Whether you are fighting for social justice, raising awareness about better environmental practices, or being an advocate for inclusion and diversity – we want to hear it all. Your voice matters, and through this scholarship, we hope to empower you to continue amplifying your impact and inspiring others to join you in the pursuit of a better world.

Applicants are invited to submit an essay highlighting their advocacy efforts and the impact they may have had, whether that be on a personal or community level. We want to hear not just about the outcomes of your advocacy work, but also the journey it took to get there, including any challenges you faced along the way. How has your voice made a difference, and what lessons have you learned along the way?
