The 4Girls Foundation, Inc. envisions a world that respects and values girls and women, and allows them the opportunity to reach their full potential – for themselves, their families, and their communities. 4Girls believes in giving a voice to girls and women by providing individuals with opportunities to enrich their lives.
Acknowledging the importance of education in the life and development of women, 4Girls Foundation established the 4Girls for Education College Scholarship to influence the life of young women by assisting them in achieving their dream of a higher education.
The 4Girls for Education College Scholarship provides the recipient with funds for her college education, giving the young woman an opportunity to expand her mind and her world so she can live to her upmost potential and be a contributing member of society.
4Girls Foundation partners with local community organizations to award the 4Girls for Education College Scholarship. Scholarships are not given directly to individuals. All community partners interested in providing scholarships can apply.
