What we’re doing:
Shattering Glass Ceilings Scholarship will provide scholarships to women, 28 years or younger, who are pursuing higher education at non-profit institutions located in the United States of America. The institutions may include colleges, universities, community colleges, technical colleges, and trade schools. Applicants need to be already enrolled or accepted at an institution and currently paying (or planning to pay) for part of their education out-of-pocket or through loans. We want to offset or cover those fees.
Shattering Glass Ceilings Scholarship will prioritize scholarships for those who fall into one or more of the following categories.
· A woman who is a first generation college student
· A woman who has immigrated to the United States of America
· A woman who is from an Economically Distressed Area (please refer to the map to check your zip code. According to the EIS http://eig.org/dci report, an Economically Distressed Area is one that ranks 80 or higher) http://eig.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/2016-Distressed-Communities-Index-Report.pdf
The number of scholarships and the amount of each scholarship we provide will depend on how much money we raise via our grassroots campaign. The scholarship will initially be offered for one year, with future funding contingent upon both our available funds and the student’s academic performance. Shattering Glass Ceilings Scholarship is under the umbrella of the non-profit organization Kerosene Lamp Foundation http://kerosenelampfoundation.org, whose mission is to empower youth to grow into healthy and well-educated adults.
Together we can help transform peoples’ lives through education, because when we shatter the ceiling, the sky’s the limit!
