“Hurricane Harvey has disrupted hundreds of thousands of students’ lives, most of whom were just about to start the new school year. We all know students, neighbors, and fellow Houstonians who are now displaced from their homes, employment, schools, and are even coping with the loss of loved ones. Like volunteers and citizens across this country, we were determined not to just stand by, but to take action."
We've been helping students for over 30 years with their educational cost and needs. This is no different. We are reaching out to past and current scholarship recipients and their families to offer assistance. This emergency aid will help students and their families recover from and manage immediate life-and-logistics emergencies so they can afford to resume their studies and complete their higher education pathways.
