GSE awards 51 scholarships for the 2014-15 year 

Support for GSE scholarships grows
Philanthropic support for the GSE totaled over $2.5 million in fiscal year 2013-14 (which ended June 30, 2014), of which $2.2 million was committed to student support. This compares to the previous year’s total giving of $534,000, with $449,700 for scholarships. In 2012-13, 46 scholarships, totaling about $105,000, were awarded to students. This year, we awarded 51 scholarships, totaling about $175,000 to support future teachers and counselors.

Scholarships impact futures
Scholarships provide important support, not only for the student recipients, but for the many individuals whose lives these students will impact throughout their careers.

In the words of one GSE scholarship recipient, “I hope to bring social awareness into the classroom, to foster students who are good world citizens and are equipped with the tools to address the inequalities both in the global sphere and in their own backyard.”

Thanks to those of you who generously support GSE scholarships!
