New Skills, New Opportunities
The goal of Free for Life’s scholarship program is building and sustaining partnerships between FFLI and individual trafficking survivors around the world who are dedicated to pursuing educational or vocational training to empower their lives of freedom.
These partnerships can include higher education or skills training in various fields and are designed to be sustained over a survivor’s entire educational journey – up to Master’s level education.
The eligibility requirements for survivors are as follows:
- Each survivor must have completed a rehabilitation program through a local shelter or nonprofit program.
- Each survivor must have a passionate heart and personal desire to pursue education or vocational training
- Each survivor must complete all necessary prerequisites to be accepted into their desired institution or program
Scholarship applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but according to the following schedule:
Deadline for Spring funding: November 16th at 5:00 PM
Deadline for Summer funding: March 15th at 5:00 PM
Deadline for Fall funding: July 12th at 5:00 PM
Any application sent after a listed deadline will be taken into consideration for the following term. Every application is reviewed by Free for Life’s committee and top applicants will be selected for interviews within a month of each deadline.
