The Graduate Fund


The Graduate Fund, imagine1day's High School Scholarship Program, is designed to support high performing students from poor and disadvantaged households in rural Ethiopia in completing a full course of high school education (Grades 9-12) and in developing as future leaders of Ethiopia. Concurrently, The Graduate Fund supports the families of scholarship recipients in developing micro-enterprises to support their children's education while increasing their financial position and economic potential. Traditional scholarships are essentially aid solutions, with very little involvement of families in the education of their children. By simultaneously supporting families with seed loans to create the resources to own the legacy of their child's education, The Graduate Fund gives families a clear advantage to keeping their children in school and furthering their education.
