More than any other reason, students drop out of college because they have to work to support themselves and their families.

In lieu of a diamond engagement ring, The Education Is Forever Scholarship was created by Irene Hsieh and Aaron Scholl in 2015 to celebrate the lasting impact that education has on a person’s future. This scholarship supports YouthBuild graduates by reducing the economic barriers for college success and aid them in fulfilling their great potential as community leaders. 

100% of gifts will go directly to the scholarship fund and are tax deductible.

Your donation’s impact:

$50 provides a monthly bus pass to and from school.

$65 helps provide books and school supplies for one month.

$100 helps provide one month of tuition at a Los Angeles community college.

$750 helps provide one month of childcare for a student’s child.

$1,435 helps provide rent for one month in Los Angeles.

If you would like to make a monthly commitment, you may do so using the installments option. Thank you for your support!
