Receiving a scholarship makes a big impact on a student, and awarding a scholarship makes a big impact on you. Helping young people get closer to a degree is one of the most satisfying gifts you can give.

Did you know that scholarships have a direct, real impact on the worldwide workforce? As our economy becomes more globalized, connected and automated, the face of the workforce will continue to change. One thing won’t change, though. The workforce in the United States will continue to need more and more workers with college degrees.

“There will be 55 million job openings in the economy through 2020: 24 million openings from newly created jobs and 31 million openings due to baby boom retirements. ... 35 percent of the job openings will require at least a bachelor’s degree, 30 percent of the job openings will require some college or an associate’s degree and 36 percent of the job openings will not require education beyond high school.”

That’s right: within the next five years, two of every three jobs will require at least a two-year degree. Some scholars cite that the MFA is the new MBA because while learning art the students learn problem solving, communication, and collaboration – key leadership skills for the 21st century.
