Hope Scholarship Program – our program provides full ride scholarships to 10,000 students who have earned acceptance into a local or foreign university or for those already in attendance at an accredited school.

At Friends of Hope, we believe a quality elementary school education puts children on the path to success in life. We expand educational opportunity by providing scholarships to families in need so children can attend the K-12 schools that best meet their needs and help them reach their full potential, regardless of their ability to pay or where they live.

With our partner programs nationwide, FOH currently funds and manages scholarships for almost 10,000 children. These FOH Scholars live close to/below the federal poverty line yet their families are all paying at least 25 percent of their tuition each year. We believe this financial contribution is key to our program's success, encouraging strong family involvement and ensuring that FOH families are fully invested and empowered in their children's education. Our research finds FOH Scholars graduate high school on time and enroll in college at significantly higher rates than their public school peers.
