Scholarships...you can help!
Do you want to start a scholarship in a loved one's memory?
In memory of one of the homeless children in Whittier, CA this fund pays for "extras" like field trips, uniforms, books, supplies—items that these children needduring their schoolyear (so they will "fit in" better with their peers). Administered by the School's Vice Principal, this scholarship saves the children who are in desperate need from embarassment, and enables them to fully participate in their classes.
Daniel's College Scholarship
Established in 2009, this scholarship is designed to enable students who show intiative, get up drive attitude and demonstrate a good work ethic (reflected in their grades, ambitions, future plans and their after school activities) to achieve further educational goals.
Our first recepient of this scholarship is Daniel Graham. Daniel is working as Artists of America's Administrative Intern, at the age of 15, to earn money for his college education.
AOA is starting this scholarship to match the funds he earns, to give him hope and incentive to stay on course, to reach, to dream, to work to fulfill his full potential.
Artists of America is extremely proud of Daniel, and the way he is becoming a man.
We urge our supporters to please give generously to Daniel's College Education. His ability to go to college, to get his degree, is not limited by his grades, or is hard work. It is limited only by the funds to go to college.
You can learn more about Daniel, and his dreams, by going to "Meet our Interns!"
Because of your donation to his education, Daniel himself will send you a thank you (one is never too young or too old to learn manners, right?) and he will keep you updated on his school, his grades and his achievements.
And all of us, here at Artists of America, thank you for helping make the difference in these young people's lives.
