Giving Soul Scholarships was founded to help students find their passion for making a difference in the world and act on it.
personally relevant and powerfully positive.
How do we do this?
First, we have developed a platform for students to earn college scholarship money for telling their story. Posting their stories and competing for the best story helps the students to define and describe their goals. The scholarship application essay can also serve to give the students source material for college application essays. Today students are facing increasingly fierce competition on college admissions. The Giving Soul membership and scholarship program helps students improve their chances of acceptance by show colleges their unique personal interest in creating a positive change in the world. Many colleges are looking for that kind of dedication and relevance in students today.
Additionally, our goal is to also develop a platform for matching students to nonprofit organizations that are in their passion interest to change the world. By connecting to those organizations the students gets a professional look at how others have been trying to solve that problem in the world. We hope that these connections can provide life long interests for the student.
Our vision over the first year of operations is to register over 1,000,000 “Giving Soul students” and to match them to over 24,000 nonprofit organizations.
