I’m very excited about our latest partnership with a new organization: The Fund for Global Education
GLA has been a pioneer in recruiting students from developing countries into our programs. Every year we have students from over 30 countries – and usually representation from over 10 African nations.
Most of these students require a scholarship or significant financial aid. Because GLA believes that international student diversity makes a better experience for all our students, we’ve allocated a part of our budget to these scholarships.
Most American non-profits provide scholarships for American students to participate on GLA. However, The Fund is the first American non-profit organization that we’ve encountered that provides funding for both American and international students, with a focus on African and Latin American students.
Hopefully, with the support of The Fund we will be able to double the number of scholarship we offer to low-income students.
Since families of GLA alumni know that we recruit amazing students from disadvantaged backgrounds, I encourage you to consider The Fund in your annual philanthropic giving. All donations are tax-deductible.
