The 2016 UP Through Education Summit participants

ALL WAYS UP SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

WHAT is IT?

To nurture the potential of our country’s future leaders, activists and philanthropists, ALL WAYS UP established a scholarship program in 2009, focused on youth who, without financial support, might not otherwise be able to attend college. In addition to assistance with school tuition, college-prep seminars and leadership workshops, ALL WAYS UP offers ongoing support services to ensure that scholarship recipients matriculate through and graduate from college. These services include tutoring, creating community college transfer plans and major selection advice. ALL WAYS UP scholarships are renewable every year for up to four years while the scholars are enrolled in a college or university. To date, All Ways Up has provided more $1,500,000 in scholarships to over 400 students.
