Notre Dame student Joseph Smith awarded national civics scholarship

The Foundation for the Restoration of America (FFROA) awarded a $2,000 scholarship to University of Notre Dame student Joseph Smith following his completion of the Constitutional Study Program.

Smith is from Dallas, Texas and is currently pursuing a degree in Finance. After taking the free courses in the Constitutional Study Program provided through Hillsdale College, he reflected on the necessity of learning about these founding ideals and documents.

“It is of the utmost importance that the few in each generation who believe in the truth of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence make a sacrifice for the betterment of all,” Smith noted.

He continued, “It is easy to recognize the issues facing freedom in America, but difficult to have the courage to seize an opportunity to make a difference.”
