Fran Boller says her son Jordan was one of a kind. An athletic, academic and well-rounded kid, Boller says what made Jordan stand out the most was how inclusive he was and how he stood up for the underdog. On February 8, 2015, Jordan passed away from a seizure at the age of 22. To help turn their pain into purpose, Boller and her family started The Jordan Krakauer Memorial Scholarship to help students majoring in sports marketing or management.

To apply, you must be a U.S. citizen enrolled in a two-year or four-year college, university or trade school. The first place winner receives a $10,000 yearly scholarship, the second place winner receives a $5,000 yearly scholarship and the third place winner receives a $2,500 yearly scholarship. The deadline to apply is May 22, 2018. You can learn more about Boller and how you can turn your pain into purpose in Jessica Abo's book Unfiltered: How to Be as Happy as You Look on Social Media.
