Education is an important and indispensable aspect in one’s life. Sadly, not everyone is given equal opportunities to complete a degree primarily because of fiscal constraints. It is because of this lack that foundations all over the globe have come together to share a common goal of providing financial aid to students through programs and scholarships so that even when families could not afford to send their own kids to school, these scholarships can.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is teaming up with partners around the world to undertake tough challenges including poor health and extreme poverty in developing countries as well as the failures of America’s education system. The grants they provide are of very great help to students who are financially incapable of paying educational fees.
Another unique foundation called the Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance imparts insightful information that teaches high school students how to manage their finances and build wealth. A solid knowledge base on these issues will help students handle and manage what little money they have as of the moment until they grow richer overtime. Even their parents can benefit from finance education.
The College Foundation of North Carolina or CFNC is a free service of the State of North Carolina. This foundation aims to help students plan, apply and pay for their college. The College Foundation of North Carolina is a partnership of Pathways, the N.C. State Education Assistance Authority and College Foundation Inc.
For as long as poverty pollutes our nation foundations of educational institutions will continue to filter out and clear the air by providing students with opportunities to earn education through financial assistance. Not only will the students benefit from it but also their families so that they can finally break through economic paucity.
