Flywire Charitable Foundation
The Flywire Charitable Foundation aims to improve equality, access and affordability for underrepresented individuals and communities.
For the 2021 academic year, seven total scholarships of $5,000 USD each will be awarded across the following themes:
As social justice issues such as policing, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, religious persecution, sexism, racism and sexual violence, have continued to dominate the world news this year, the need for significant social justice reform has only increased. These scholarships aim to support tomorrow’s leaders who will work towards eradicating racism, violence, systemic biases and other acts of intolerance.
As individuals and communities around the world continue to overcome the challenges of a global pandemic, it’s clear that there is a strong need for innovative approaches to improve global health. These scholarships will be awarded to students who are committed to enhancing health outcomes and quality of life for individuals all over the world.
From climate change and sustainability, to income inequality, this year has uncovered the importance of elevating humanity when addressing challenges across social, political, environmental and economic issues. Scholarships in this category will be awarded to students who embody their own definition of being a global citizen with the purpose of making a positive impact on their community and the world.
