VisionAR provides scholarships and mentorship to outstanding college students that demonstrate high academic performance, a commitment to succeed, and financial need.
This program provides opportunity to deserving students who otherwise would not have the financial means nor the mentorship to pursue a college education. Support is provided through funding to cover all costs related to the students' education and as mentorship, moral support and guidance by the program founder and the local program coordinator.
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.
VisionAR will give low-income youth the opportunity to have a college education and a career that will impact their lives, with the opportunity to influence their families and communities. 2008 = 4 scholarships; 2009 = 5 scholarships.
Our VISIONAR students work very hard to realize their goals and dreams. Our mission is to help them in their endeavors, one student at a time. - Gabriela, Program founder
