The College Sponsorship Program was created to help low income college students achieve academic success. Many low income students are forced to work long hours, while simultaneously attending college or university full time. When this occurs, it usually results in a decline in a student's academic performance.
Child Foundation's College Sponsorship Program was created after a professor witnessed students struggling with their academic studies. The following excerpt was taken from a letter of request sent by this professor to Child Foundation:
"Where I teach, we have some very poor but bright students that due to poverty
and low income in their families have difficulty concentrating on their studies. I
suggest that Child Foundation provide some financial support to these university
students. Paying for bright but poor university students would have a high return.
These students would soon become successful and feel responsible to help support
other children and students."
Child Foundation collaborates with numerous universities to make funds available to students who are economically disadvantaged. Since the inception of this program, Child Foundation has helped over 400 children in need obtain a college education.
Please note that the College Sponsorship Program is not available in every country that we serve.*
Child Foundation has learned that one of the most effective ways of helping children is to combine the donations of our sponsors so that we can purchase food and other essential supplies in bulk. Thus, your donation may not be provided directly to your sponsored child. This system not only allows us to comply with federal regulations, but also allows Child Foundation to provide benefits to even more children than the small number who are fortunate enough to have a sponsor like you.
