support our scholars

Renew your commitment to provide bright disadvantaged youth with higher education, leadership training, fellowships, and grant opportunities for projects they lead to advance their global communities.

Your contribution of any amount will make a difference. Because we are a small organization with such a global reach, community support is fundamental to our success. All donations are tax deductible.

When you donate, please specify in the notes section whether you want to renew for a year or for the duration of your Scholar’s education.

Full-Year Scholar Sponsorship

One Academic Year:
With a donation of $2500 today you renew your support for this academic year. You will receive an
annual update on your sponsee’s academic and community service work and the scholarship will
continue to be named in honor of your honoree.
Remainder of Degree:
With a donation of $2500 today and a commitment to renewing for the duration of the scholar’s
education you will continue to receive annual updates on their academic and community service work.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to get video updates from sponsee, the option for a
one-on-one Zoom call, and annual updates after they graduate.

When WMI offers scholarships to scholars each August we commit to funding their education until they
complete their degree, providing on-going career counseling and flexible tuition to ensure their
success. Scholars are then able to excel in their academics, their community service projects and gain
invaluable professional experience.

Thank You!
