Fundraising & Financial Aid
Where there is a will, there is a way
For many nominees, the excitement of attending one of our programs begins months before the actual start date, especially for those who take on the challenge of fundraising to raise all or a portion of tuition.
Students who successfully fundraise report that it can be rewarding, inspiring and fun! Students often tell us that fundraising helped them build confidence in themselves and discover that they can do anything if they set their mind to it.
With that in mind, we have developed a helpful, easy to use online Sponsorship and Student Fundraising Guide. In the guide, you will find helpful step-by-step instructions, customizable letters, fundraising ideas and success stories from past students.
We are also committed to ensuring the diversity of our programs by awarding a limited number of need and achievement based Scholarships.
We strongly encourage nominees to take an active role in preparing for your program experience through fundraising.
In fact, over one-third of our scholars fundraise part or all of their tuition.
To help you do the same, please visit our Program Overview page, click through to the program you are planning to attend and follow the link to the Tuition & Financial Assistance tab. There you will find a student fundraising guide featuring helpful, step-by-step suggestions and activities.
"I earned all my money through fundraisers i did myself ... I wrote a letter to people from church and school ... asking if they have any knick knacks they wouldn't mind me selling for a garage sale fundraiser. I also did a bake sale, but that didn’t turn out so well... ;-)."
