VisionAR provides scholarships and mentorship to outstanding college students that demonstrate high academic performance, a commitment to succeed, and financial need.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Funds cover tuition, books, school supplies, and other costs related to the student's education (this may include transportation, meals, clothes, etc). Detailed expense reports and students' progress are communicated to donors quarterly.
