Scholarship Program

The foundation will award scholarships to be paid directly to a college or university on behalf of a grantee of the award. The award will be a gift, not a loan. At present, it is anticipated that the amount of the gift will vary depending on the college or university. At present, the foundation contemplates only one category of recipients for the award. All recipients must: 1) be an active member of One Earth One People (OEOP), Cincinnati, OH; 2) maintain an overall 3.0 GPA or better; 3) inform foundation of grades each grade period; 4) prefer residence in a campus dorm; and 5) have a demonstrated need for financial assistance to enable the recipient to attend a college or university. There are no restrictions based upon race or the employment of the recipient. All grants will be made directly to the college or university selected by the recipient upon presentation of a bill for tuition to ensure that foundation funds are used for their intended purpose, to pay tuition costs. The availability of this scholarship will be publicized by inclusion of a description of the scholarship at the OEOP Office and by public postings in the schools.
