About Lightship Foundation
Our mission is to empower BIPOC students by providing access to top-tier scholarships and creative funding opportunities that remove barriers to higher education. We aim to increase the number of BIPOC students in higher education by providing academic opportunities that support their educational and career goals.
We believe that education is a powerful tool for social and economic mobility and that everyone deserves an equal opportunity to pursue their educational and career aspirations. Unfortunately, many BIPOC students face significant barriers to higher education, including financial obstacles, lack of access to resources and networks, and systemic biases.
Our organization is committed to addressing these barriers and empowering BIPOC students to reach their full potential. We do this by offering a range of programs and services, including scholarship programs, mentorship programs, college prep workshops, career development programs, and fundraising campaigns.
Through these initiatives, we aim to create a more equitable and just society by fostering the next generation of BIPOC leaders. We believe that by supporting BIPOC students and providing them with the tools and resources they need to succeed, we can help build a better future for all.
