Endeavor (for high school students)
Endeavor is a scholarship program for high school students in foster care group homes and foster families. Youths placed under foster care after experiencing hardships like abuse, neglect, etc. have a low rate of pursuing higher education after graduating from high school. Approximately 10% go on to 4-year universities. In this context, we support high school students trying to rise above hardships and work for others in need. Endeavor Program provides financial aid to cover the cost of college application and opportunities to participate in a series of leadership programs to think about their future career and find roles to play in society. The funds for financial aid are secured from private donors.
