What is Education Generation?
EdGen is re-imagining the role of education in developing a generation with the confidence, capacity and determination to help shape their local and global communities. We work together, $20 at a time, to fund scholarships for young leaders to participate in some the world’s most forward-thinking education programs.
How We Work
We partner with high caliber institutions and community organizations to manage scholarships and student relationships. These organizations are deeply rooted in their communities, and typically emphasize leadership development, creative thinking, entrepreneurial skills and market relevant training, while working to influence their education system as a whole.
EdGen scholarships are merit based, and we see it as our central responsibility to portray students as the emerging leaders that they are, showcasing their goals, achievements, and community aspirations.
Why We Do It
- We believe that education is an investment in people, communities and future local economies.
- Our personal success, curiosity and values were shaped by educational opportunities received in and outside of the classroom. We want to support similar opportunities for all young people.
- Scholarship programs have been key to accessing education for most of our team and many that we know, and we recognize the potential to extend this opportunity much further.
