What's Next Scholarship
Every young man should take an active role in shaping his future. “What’s Next” is an initiative that recognizes rising male high school seniors, and current college students by providing them with a platform to share their future plans. Once chosen, ambassadors for the "What's Next" Initiative will receive a $500 scholarship to the school of their choice.
This scholarship is open to current Male Undergraduate College students, or Male High School Seniors. Must be a Citizen or Permanent Resident, and live in Virginia. Applicants can use scholarship funds to attend in-state or out of state colleges. We do not use the FAFSA to determine need, only the essay provided by the student.
To apply, send an email to with the subject line "What's Next 2019 Scholarship".
In the body of the email include your name, cell phone number, address, and email. If you are a high school student include your current high school and your counselor's contact information, and your top college choice. If you are a current college student, please list where you are enrolled.
Attach to the email as a word document, a 500-word or more essay that highlights any community service completed, academic achievements, and any personal explanations of need.
Also, attach to the email headshot photo of yourself in professional attire.
Here is a sample of a headshot photo that would be accepted:

About this donor
There are many ways to impact someone's life every single day, but at Shared Expressions we'd like to take that a step further.
Psychology Today conducted a study in which they showed 300 adults (men and women) images of a man in two different suits and asked the subjects to make “snap judgments” about the man. The study found that after just three seconds, people rated the man as more confident, successful, and flexible when he wore a made-to-measure suit rather than an off-the-rack equivalent.
These results aren’t surprising.
