Scholarship

With your help, a disadvantaged student can earn a college degree and rise out of the cycle of poverty. You can sponsor a college student for $50/month or you can give any amount to the World’s Children Scholarship Fund. We award scholarships to both men and women but nearly 90% of our scholarship students are young women.

The World’s Children Scholarship Program provides funding for vulnerable and impoverished students who have completed high school in good standing and want to earn a college degree or pursue vocational training in the field of their choice. With a college degree or vocational expertise, our students enter adulthood with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to support themselves and their families.

The scholarship program is growing rapidly. In 2014, we supported 173 students in a variety of degree programs, with 23 students graduating in 2014. In 2015, we supported 191 students with 85 students graduating. The dropout rate of our scholarship recipients is less than 1% per year. Read graduates’ success stories and check out Scholarship FAQ for more details.

Research shows that education is the key to ending poverty, especially for women and girls. Educated girls are more likely to have smaller, healthier families, and are more apt to insist that their children also receive an education.
