Fullfillment, unlike success, is largely defined by internal measures, by how we feel about what we are doing or have done. Dr. Victor Frank, Man’s Search For Meaning
The Knapp family have long been advocates of empowering individuals so they can reach their full potential. Their scholarship and internship programs give young adults the head start to become servant leaders in their communities.
Leaders are learning that the empowerment servant leadership represents is one of the key principles that will be the deciding point between an organization’s enduring success or its eventual extinction – Steven Covey
Pfeiffer University in partnership with the Knapp Family Foundation provides a unique experience for deserving diverse high school seniors anticipating an academic major in business. Their purpose is to release the human potential by helping disadvantaged, diverse youths to choose growth over fear as they pursue a college education, internship and employment; to create servant leaders whose core values include family, personal faith, integrity, creativity, character, health, optimism and respect for others; to pursue excellence in business and in life with the ultimate purpose of service to others.
In conjunction with the scholarship the Knapp Family Foundation offers a summer internship at the local Merrill Lynch office. For more information contact the admissions department at Pfeiffer University.
Wake Forest University in partnership with the Knapp Family Foundation will award
scholarships on the basis of financial need, academic ability, character, integrity, leadership and the desire to make a contribution to the community in which the student lives. Preferences will be given to ethnically unrepresented students who have demonstrated servant leadership and are majoring in business, finance, economics, entrepreneurship, mathematical business or accounting.
I encourage young people to strive for leadership and excellence knowing that success will come naturally with time – Rob Knapp
