Committed to Building Healthier Financial Aid Cultures in Underserved Communities

Repair the World Atlanta is proud to partner with local partner organization The Scholarship Academy.

The Scholarship Academy is committed to leveraging our unique scholarship preparatory curriculum, trainings and technology to build healthier financial aid cultures in underserved communities. We are training counselors and corporate volunteers, designing and implementing financial aid immersion events such as Financial Aid Quiz Bowls, as well as providing students access to our customized scholarship platform. The Virtual Scholarship Center exists so that low-income and first-generation students are equipped with the tools to take ownership of their financial aid process. Our ultimate goal is to “make college funding a community affair.”

Scholarship Academy is recruiting volunteers for their “FAFSA Is the Key” Campaign to help students in Title I schools complete the FAFSA, and more information can be found here.

About the Series

This #BlackHistoryMonth Repair the World is highlighting Black-led orgs, service partners who are advancing and centering Diversity Equity and Inclusion work and prioritizing BIPOC leadership in their orgs, and Black Community Leaders that we serve with across our communities. Our impact would not be possible without them. Our Jewish values of solidarity, achdoot, and strengthening each other, hitchazkut, remind us that nothing is possible without meaningful relationships. Our partners and colleagues are critical to our ability to understand and act thoughtfully. When we lift up, celebrate, and appreciate others, we ultimately work towards a stronger outcome.
