Education

Why Education?

Receiving a quality education has been proven to impact individuals on many levels: economically, socially, professionally, and more. We believe that equitable access to education is a key driver for growth within our community. Our previous efforts have been focused on providing scholarships to support post-secondary and graduate education, as well as funding programming that contributed to various educational initiatives across the country. Under our newly consolidated pillar of Education, we plan on continuing to focus on ensuring individuals can receive a quality education at all stages of their lives. This will include new initiatives that support K-12 and adult learning opportunities. We're excited to see how our targeted focus will help impact communities and support education for all.

"This scholarship will allow me to look into post-undergrad opportunities as I finish up my last year at the University of Florida. As a double-major in Health Science and Women's Studies with a minor in Health Disparities in Society and on the pre-medical track, my goal in life is to work with underrepresented communities in order to facilitate treatments, screenings, and access to care. More specifically, this scholarship will push me in the right direction in being able to attain a Master's of Public Health before heading to medical school. The positive impact this will bring me is undeniable as I will be able to explore opportunities, pay for my academic responsibilities, and navigate the different layers of the last year of my undergraduate degree. Thank you endlessly for this amazing scholarship!
