About Our Scholarships

When a grant (not exceeding $5000) is awarded, the aid may be used for tuition at universities, colleges, and technology/trade schools. Funds may also be requested to purchase books, computer equipment, bus passes, special fees or other expenses to enable the student to attend classes. The grant money is paid directly to the institution or organization offering the needed service rather than to the recipient.
