How Scholarships Make a Positive Impact for Students

The Kroc School believes the greatest investments are the ones we make in people with the passion and the courage to create change. Peacebuilders and social innovators should not be stopped in their journeys to create better societies because they do not have access to strategic networks, new knowledge and training. 

Cristina Dabdoub, MASI 2020 graduate and recipient of the Wasson Social Innovation Scholarship 

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a big difference in the education of peacebuilders and social innovators. International students from conflict-affected and underdeveloped countries, as well as U.S. students from low-income families and struggling communities, are in great need of scholarship support. Scholarship funding makes a difference in their lives and the places they will serve.
