How does donating to the FYI Scholarship fund make a difference?
Your donation can have a huge impact on a youth's ability to pursue a postsecondary education! Here is what past winners have had to say about how receiving the FYI Scholarship is important to help youth who are seeking a postsecondary education:
"Receiving the FYI Scholarship is important to help youth seeking to access post-secondary education because it helps to relieve some of the financial burdens associated with pursuing post-secondary studies, especially considering the high costs of tuition today. Instead, it allows youth to focus on completing their studies. The FYI Scholarship is also a great motivator and encouragement for youth to stay in school, particularly for those who are the first in their family to pursue post-secondary education." -Judy 2017 FYI Scholarship Winner
"It is important to help youth seeking access to postsecondary education because it encourages them to keep doing what they are doing. For them to know that they are taking a big step towards their future and that they are supported wholeheartedly. Youth need to be encouraged to achieve their goals of going to postsecondary and realize that it is possible. This will also help them achieve other goals in life and also encourage youth like them as well." -Deneisha 2017 Scholarship Winner
