After wrapping a wildly successful college tour stop at Paul Quinn College last week, we thought it appropriate to showcase the awesome work of The H.O.P.E. Scholarship Initiative.

The folks at H.O.P.E. have been great friends to us and we’re delighted to share with all of you how awesome they are.

For the last three years, The H.O.P.E. Scholarship has been gifting the opportunity of education to young people in need. It’s mission is to make quality education affordable to deserving students. No student should be denied access to a quality education simply because they lack the necessary funds. Household incomes cannot continue to dictate academic outcomes.

When asked what the organization’s highlights have been, they gave us lots to boast about:

  • HOPE has given away five scholarships and raised nearly $10,000 in our three years of existence.
  • HOPE’s blog readership boasts 29,000+ views
  • HOPE has made the thoughts and views of university presidents, Phi Beta Kappas, and alumni accessible to current students through the HOPE Blog.
  • HOPE is helping to change the face of philanthropy by challenging millennials, ages 18 to 34, to give their time, money and talents to empower their communities (We LOVE this one, of course!)

Instead of boring you with more reading, watch to see and hear what H.O.P.E Scholarship is all about!
