Why does SOLS Scholars exist?
There is no doubt that education inequality exists, even with regards to how scholarships are awarded. Education inequality means resources are distributed in a way where those who need scholarships the most are oftentimes the ones who find it impossible to meet the academic requirements to receive them. This is why we prioritize scholars from low-income families, focusing on high-potential students, instead of students who have already proven themselves.
Additionally, for most corporations and foundations, the responsibility of managing and developing scholars can be very costly and resource-intensive. Our operations as a humanitarian organisation allow us to provide innovative, high quality enrichment programmes to scholars, as well as giving them boarding and daily meals in our facilities, significantly easing the burden of corporations and foundations who want to help.
