Prep for the future—2017 Scholarship Campaign

Overview

The Prep for the Future 2017 scholarship campaign directly supports diverse, need-based scholarship students participation in the Foresight Prep @ Oberlin program. Foresight is committed to offering an equitable and inclusive programs that cultivate a more representative pipeline of future leaders. More than two-thirds of our attendees receive need-based financial aid, the majority of which is provided by individual donations. Thanks to these funds, the program has empowered past students to succeed.

Previous participants have gone on to lead sustainability organizations at their respective high schools, colleges, and universities, win awards and grant funding for sustainability projects, and more. They emerge equipped with the insights and strategies required to create change and become part of an ongoing network to support their future college and career success.

All contributors receive weekly e-postcards during the program, an end-of-summer report written by students and staff, and a donation acknowledgement letter.

Foresight Design Initiative is an IRS recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
