After observing a lack of scholarship opportunities available to survivors of trafficking, Free for Life created a unique program to assist with educational costs. This program is open to survivors around the world, and can be used for any educational or vocational program of the survivor’s choice!
The scholarship program works to build relationships with survivors of human trafficking, so that we can walk hand-in-hand with them as they achieve their educational or vocational dreams. Our scholarships build on survivors’ strengths: their resiliency and drive to overcome challenges. They were designed to be flexible, renewable and more meaningful than a simple financial gift.
HOW TO APPLY
The eligibility requirements for survivors are:
- 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.
