I Am The Future
Change the World of One's Scholarship Program that helps fund educational opportunities for students in developing countries
We at Change the World of One believe in the power of changing the world one person at a time. One of the most dynamic ways to do this is to help students gain access to schooling. Education changes a person’s whole world.
What is the "I Am the Future" Scholarship Program designed to do?
At Change the World of One, we believe that education plays a vital role in opening opportunities and making a lasting change in the lives and communities of people around the world. Our Scholarship program is designed to assist students in developing countries who have been identified as having a unique or troubling situation that affects their ability to afford and attend school.
Who qualifies for the scholarship?
On a case-by-case basis, when funding is available, we are qualifying students in developing countries who are considered “at-risk” youth such as:
- Orphans being raised by extended family or others and are in a low-income support situation
- Victims of sexual assault
- Members of a family that has experienced a financial tragedy (such as crop failure) that has made them unable to afford their family expenses
Scholarships cover school fees, books, school uniforms, and other school supplies for these students. Our on-the-ground officers personally visit the families or caretakers of each student and go to the school with them to ensure they have everything they need for the school year. Throughout the year they check up on these students to see how they are doing and if they require further assistance.M
