IRC in San Diego Refugee Youth Scholarship Fund

THE STORY:

We Believe in the Power of Education! Refugee youth have overcome so much - gaps in their education, learning a new language, adjusting not only to a new school but a new country - they have worked so hard to graduate high school and they don’t want to stop there. Please join us in making a difference in these exceptional youth’s lives by helping us meet our goal of raising $10,000 by May 31st so we can provide scholarships to local refugee youth heading to college.

Success in the first year of college is both demanding and significant and a scholarship award can make all the difference. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, only 11 percent of low-income, first-generation students graduated within six years of starting college and less than one-quarter of first-generation students overall earn their way to a bachelor’s degree. As students transition to college, limiting outside barriers is crucial to their success. A scholarship may help reduce the financial burden of a family, so that a student feels less pressure to get a job and can focus only on school during their first year. It may also lessen the concerns of how they can afford transportation, food, or those expensive text books, setting them up to succeed.
