A brighter future starts with an education, it is important for children because they are the future of the world and they should be updated with current affairs. They are the pillars of the nation, to develop a country and the world the future should be secure and the children are the weapons to build the nation with all their knowledge and education.
Education is the ability to think, apply it in the world and to know the value of life. It doesn’t limit with self-education, but also to spread it to every human around us. There is no end for education, as in each and every stage of human life we learn something.
It is not about learning life, but education itself is life.
WHAT IS THE FUNDING COLLEGE PROJECT – Success is measured a number of ways; we often see it in the eyes first and then followed by expressions of status…
The Funding College Project is about finding and using techniques and strategies to support school aged and post high school activities. We work with students and families internationally. We identify, alerting interested parties to existing options, building contacts, answering questions, completing forms and nominations for prizes and awards. Learn More: www.educatingouryouth.org
The Research continues for the addition of the Cash for Kids effort which will be providing Elementary & Middle School student families, resources, reported from June to January. Adding this foundational effort, where we attempt to identify a number of Honors and Awards in our mixture for those in middle, high, vocational school college and into adulthood.
The Funding College Project, and Cash for Kids are non-commercial activities and have been asked to supply to individuals, organizations, newspapers, and community bulletin boards serving the area with information about active honors, awards, scholarships and insightful advice.

WE CREATE ACADEMIC HEROES – The Institute of Competition Sciences has been defining best-practices in competition strategy, design, and operations. We aim to spark a new level of community engagement in science, technology, and education by supporting a global network of educational competitions. ICS maintains a firm commitment to providing real value to our users through a thoughtful, step-by-step approach to educational engagement. This drives the development of services that go above and beyond just running competitions. For ICS, it’s not only about creating a tool for students, educators and innovators. It’s about creating academic heroes and building the structures and systems upon which they can be recognized and rewarded. There are already great educational competitions, but there has not yet been a coordinated, collaborative system to support, recognize, and reward their student and educator participants. This is what ICS strives to provide. We aim to do for educational competitions what ESPN has done for professional sports, and much more. Competitions: www.competitionsciences.org/competitions/

- Exhibit strong character, such as resilience, integrity, and motivation to succeed.
When you refer students to QuestBridge, we will send them information about our programs. You can refer younger students and we will contact them when they become eligible.
