Educational assistance is a key aspect of Pearl Foundation’s mission.[\lead]
In line with our mission to help communities to empower and raise themselves out of the poverty cycle, Pearl Foundation funds scholarships for qualified students to attend institutes of higher education – traditionally a difficulty given the high costs of education and the limited availability of financial assistance. These scholarships are awarded to those who cannot otherwise afford education and have the merits to attain a college degree.
“For the cause that lacks assistance, The wrong that needs resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that I can do.” — George Linnaeus Banks — What I live for.
For others in impoverished communities who seek religious education but do not have the means to attain qualified, accurate religious guidance, Pearl Foundation will provide the facilities and faculty to those that meet the need-based criteria, based upon personal interviews, reviews of tax returns and other financial documents.
