"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe." - Anatole France
Often times our young people of America limit themselves with the resources that are available in finding scholarship money. As a result of the limitations; students often delay enrolling into college, graduating and or get into alot of financial debt with student loans.
"We're here to help."
We understand some students are stronger academically than others and have not received tuition paid scholarships to cover 100% of their cost. We also realize that some students start out with scholarships and grants only to end up having funds cut; therefore causing them to drop out of college or delay their studies. Nationally college funding has been cut which makes it difficult for many to attend college. Statistics show that 59% of jobs today require some post secondary education; however about 39% of American adults have a college degree. "We're here to help increase these numbers."
Inspiring Students To Excel In Higher Education is an organization that will motivate and train U.S. citizens who are college bound and enrolled college students. Students must be enrolled or planning to attend a 4 year accredited college with a minimum of 2.5 GPA or better. Our requirement on the pursuit of a 4 year degree is based upon what scholarship organizations generally require as well as high ranking employers who will be hiring the student after graduation. Our mission is to help students and parents who desire to be helped in funding their college education debt free. We will also provide important tools that many scholarship organizations will request from their applicants. The one time cost to participate in our program is $35.00. You will not be asked to send us referrals to gain points to win a prize. We will not share any of your personal information to outside agencies nor will you be asked for any additional funds to receive further information. Our program is all inclusive. We offer much value with our information that offers numerous hours of research, planning and training.

Our goal is to encourage high schools nationally to not only highlight the athletic department and which students that have been drafted to the NBA, NFL and MLB, but to also highlight the scholastic achievement of alumnae who have attended college and graduated debt free.
Our added incentive to our program is the annual "Scholarship Awards Letter Competition". We will reward the Top 3 Students with the most award letters received. (Minimum of 7 letters is required to be amongst the Top 3) 1st Prize $300.00, 2nd Prize $150.00 and 3rd Prize $50.00. Students may only apply once to be apart of the Scholarship Awards Letter Competition. The deadline to submit copies of award letters is December 30th. The committee of judges will carefully review and confirm all award letters that are received. Once the review is complete; winners will be notified and receive funds in February.
College bound and enrolled college students participating in our "Tools for Success" & Scholarship Awards Letter Competition-will also learn the following key life lessons: "What I do today, can help establish my future for tomorrow." "The same motivational drive that I use to find scholarship money to attend college; will be the same persistence needed to locate my career job once the diploma is received."
