March for Life Scholarship

March for Life Scholarship (2024)

Brenna, Lena, Vivian, Maria

Students are eligible for one of five $200 scholarships to be applied to their Grand Rapids Right to Life bus trip expenses for their trip to the March for Life in Washington, DC.

Held on the somber anniversary of the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton U.S. Supreme Court decisions that legalized abortion-on-demand in this country, this peaceful demonstration is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time. After almost 50 years, the U.S. Supreme Court finally overturned the egregious Roe v. Wade decision. The March for Life is now a celebration of life, and a reminder of the work that must be done to protect life through national and state laws and to achieve the ultimate goal of making abortion unthinkable.

Each year Grand Rapids Right to Life organizes up to 13 buses to travel from Michigan to Washington, DC, for the largest prolife gathering in the world.
