Education Across the Ages
This initiative focuses on enabling children and youth to have a solid educational foundation beginning with early childhood literacy, transitions with the provision of traditional scholarships, and continues through life by equipping adults with the financial means to develop their minds and raise their career prospects.
We have scholarships available for graduating high school and current college students who are pursuing either an Associate or Bachelor’s degree or career credentials.
