The 1 For 2 Education Foundation is seeking highly motivated applicants of accredited U.S. four-year colleges and universities. Applicants seeking scholarships for U.S. graduate schools are welcome to apply, however, the first priority is given to undergraduate scholars.

The Foundation considers the applicant’s high school academic record, leadership and community service activities, and any letters of recommendation.

While receiving a scholarship from the Foundation, scholars are required to attend the Foundation’s annual gathering. During this time you will have a chance to meet other scholars and directors. You will also be able to participate in personal development learning sessions. The 2019 Gathering will be held on July 26-29, 2019 in Michigan.

Applicants are required to make the following pledge:

In consideration of the 1 For 2 Education Foundation (“the Foundation”) paying for my tuition, I pledge to support the mission of the Foundation to build a community of scholars who are dedicated to being life-long learners by:

  1. a)Participating in the annual Foundation Gathering and supporting my fellow scholars’ academic and career goals
  2. b) Paying for the tuition for a comparable education of two persons, who are not related to me by blood, adoption, or marriage, during my lifetime

Confirm eligibility to maintain scholarship:

Scholars need to be full-time students and maintain a 3.0 GPA and will be required to provide proof of grades each semester.

Preference will be given to those applicants who apply before February 28, 2019.  However, applications will be accepted until April 30, 2019.
