Because learning is not limited to a classroom or an academic calendar . . .
We believe learning is a continual, lifelong exercise incorporating all elements of one’s experience; this journey does not end when you receive a certificate or degree. We want to support and encourage all ongoing learning, academic and applied, in traditional and non-traditional formats. We encourage students to let their passion and sense of exploration be their guide!
We designed our scholarship to be as dynamic and individual as the students we support. Factors such as school selection, scholarships, and educational path can impact how and when we can best help. We will work with each student to identify needs and resources, and match our support accordingly.
Maximum Assistance over lifetime of award (ten years): $100,000 per student
We partner with our students long term. Full time students pursuing their undergraduate degree or similar certificate may receive up to $5,000 per semester / $10,000 per year. Students are encouraged to continue their lifelong education through means that best fit their interests and fields of study. Continuing students may apply for funds based on their individual learning opportunities. Our directors will determine individual annual amounts based on the student’s demonstration of embracing the goals of the foundation, funds available, and costs.
