UP THROUGH

EDUCATION

To nurture the potential of our country’s future leaders, activists and philanthropists, ALL WAYS UP established a scholarship program in 2009, focused on youth who, without financial support, might otherwise be unable to obtain a college education. To date, ALL WAYS UP has provided over $2.5 million in scholarships to more than 400 students.

ALL WAYS UP SCHOLARSHIP

 

The primary focus of ALL WAYS UP is to help motivated students with
demonstrated financial need turn their dreams of a college education into reality. Applications for the ALL WAYS UP Scholarship are open to eligible students during the spring of their senior year of high school. The students receive an average of $2,500 per year to assist with college-related expenses that are not covered by financial aid. The scholarships are renewable while the students are enrolled in college. This year, ALL WAYS UP will award scholarships to an additional 60 students from all over the United States.
