The Flywire Charitable Foundation is committed to improving access to quality education and healthcare. By doing so, we strive to create a more inclusive, just and equitable society, where every individual can explore new cultures and experiences across borders, regardless of one’s background.
A future where individuals and communities all over the world have equal access to the resources needed to improve their outcomes, regardless of one’s race, gender, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation.
This starts with closing the affordability gap for individuals seeking to access high quality healthcare, education and other life experiences, no matter where they are in the world.
Our mission and vision stand on three pillars:
The Flywire Charitable Foundation scholarships are awarded to students in need to help them better manage costs associated with their education. In 2023 we will be recognizing students who leverage their skill and education to advance the causes related to the following academic disciplines:
The Social Justice Scholarship honors students who are passionate about addressing systemic inequalities and promoting social justice. As social justice issues, including but not limited to: policing, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, religious persecution, sexism, racism and sexual violence continue to dominate the world news, the need for significant social justice reform has only increased. These scholarships will be awarded to tomorrow’s leaders who are committed to eradicating racism, violence, systemic biases and other acts of intolerance.
The Global Health Scholarship recognizes students who are committed to promoting health and wellbeing on a global scale. It aims to support those who are dedicated to addressing health disparities and improving access to healthcare in underprivileged communities. Recipients of this scholarship are expected to use their education and skills to advance the cause of global health and promote healthcare equity. They may also be expected to engage in research and advocacy to address global health challenges and develop innovative solutions to improve health outcomes around the world.
The Global Citizenship Scholarship recognizes students who are committed to promoting global citizenship and cultural understanding around the world. As global conflicts have escalated across the world stage, it’s important now more than ever to elevate humanity when addressing challenges across social, political, and economic issues. Scholarships in this category will be awarded to students who work to break down cultural barriers and promote mutual respect and understanding among people from diverse backgrounds in their communities and the world.
The Environmental Sustainability scholarship recognizes students who work to protect the environment and pioneer sustainability initiatives. The most critical resource that we have is a healthy planet, yet the ongoing threats to environmental health continue to endanger our livelihood. Scholarships in this category will be awarded to students who are actively working to reduce the environmental impact of human-made activities and preserving Earth’s natural resources for all future generations.
