Scholarships and Grants

Each year, Envision has offered a limited number of scholarships and grants to qualified students attending our programs. Knowing both the incredible benefit of attending an Envision program and the challenge of educational fees, we have greatly expanded our scholarship and grant funding. With the assistance of our corporate and academic partners, Envision is proud to provide over $1,000,000 in scholarships and grants to students attending our 2019 programs, helping to give students the opportunity to make their career and life aspirations a reality.
