For the third year, we are thrilled to introduce 8 new recipients of the SFIG Foundation Scholarship. These students have been awarded a combined $260,000* in scholarships, which will be distributed as they progress in their studies.
The SFIG Foundation, Mentor Foundation USA, and Scholarship America have partnered to further educational opportunities for underserved youth who have successfully completed Mentor Foundation USA’s Career Mentoring or Youth Ambassador programs. Since 2017, the SFIG Foundation has awarded 29 students nearly $500,000 in scholarships.
The mission of The SFIG Foundation is to help those in need build a better future. The Foundation will also look to connect scholarship recipients to potential career opportunities within the significant network of SFIG member companies.
Congratulations to our 2019 Scholarship Recipients!
