Memorial scholarship named after you

If you were to meet an untimely demise at the hands of a driver distracted by texting or as a result of an encounter with a troubled mental patient who purchased a firearm at a gun show an hour before meeting you, maybe your friends and colleagues would establish a scholarship fund to honor you.

You would not be around to take part in the discussions about the philosophy guiding the awarding of the grants, of course. But what would you hope the scholarship committee would look for when choosing students who will receive the money?
