Scholarship: Investment In PeopleYour investment in a student will impact the lives of many people. Designated scholarship contributions go toward the tuition and room/board costs of the scholarship student. Students are selected based on family need, academic excellence, and teacher's recommendation. For University students ($850 USD/ yr, $2,550 for three years) (updated in 2016), financial support starts in their second year and continues through graduation. Your investment in these students will impact many lives and change the students. Your encouragement will give them much confidence and understanding of people who care. In every past scholarship student, the recipient was the first in their family to receive a college degree.
