Graduation Ceremony

PAY IT FORWARD SCHOLARSHIP

HOW IT WORKS

Graduation

RECEIVE IT

The student will receive $5,000.00 through the Pay It Forward Scholarship to cover for any additional cost that is not being covered with the scholarships or financial aid they have received so far.

PAY IT

The student is then expected to pay 50% of the scholarship back in a period of 5 years, which means they will pay First Serve $500 for 5 years once they are settled in a stable job. 

Student Life

USE IT

The money that the student pays back will be used to provide another Pay It Forward  Scholarship to current First Serve mentors. From there, the cycle continues!
