The goal of the RPCard Foundation is help minority high school seniors make the transition from high school to college. All too often high school students who want to pursue higher education are discouraged because they lack the finances needed to attend a college or university of their choice. Other obstacles stand in their way such as poor family support or insufficient income to pay for a college education.
Moreover, many young people give up on their ambitions because the world around them seems so complicated. Recognizing that there are many grants and financial aid options for students to consider, the reality that often comes to mind to young people and their parents is how to pay back their loans after graduation from college.
Considering the rising cost of education and the prospects for gainful employment after graduating college, small wonder some high school seniors, who possess the grades and academic capacity to attend and graduate college, elect not to further their educational ambitions beyond obtaining a high school diploma.
At the RPCard Foundation, we strive to help students who have the determination to help themselves. Our efforts are channeled through high school administrators and guidance counselors who are committed to inspiring their students, and to minority students themselves who have higher education aspirations.
With that goal in mind, the RPCard Foundation will award qualified minority high school seniors full/partial scholarships to institutions of higher learning. In so doing, the students will be afforded the opportunity to attend the college or university of their choice unencumbered by tuition concerns or repaying a student loan upon graduation.
