At AGFAF we believe in the transformative power of education. Our program is designed to provide financial and mentoring support to highly qualified students which compliments their academic scholarships and provides them with the opportunity to work on projects to improve the lives of the Afghan people.
Over time, we have come to understand that education comes in many forms and each student's needs are unique. The result is a multifaceted approach to supporting education and enhancing our impact.
Historically, students have received financial support for their education as well as summer internship and project support. While remaining focused on the education of excellent students who demonstrate their commitment to the Afghan people through the projects they undertake, we have recently expanded our model to include more high school, collegiate, and graduate school opportunities within and outside of the United States.
We accomplish our goal of providing access to education through the following programs:
Educating young Afghans, primarily women, and empowering them to improve the lives of the Afghan people is the foundation on which AGFAF was conceived.
Our students are selected through a rigorous application and interview process, helping us identify some of the best and brightest young Afghans. AGFAF works closely with qualified applicants in identifying educational opportunities and securing financial aid. At times, applicants have already gained college admittance and require support to bridge a financial gap in their scholarship award.
In addition to the financial piece, AGFAF provides emotional, academic and project support for each student who participates in our program.
Circumstances may make it preferable or necessary for a student to pursue their college education in another country. Similarly to their US colleagues, these students require additional financial support. Application and interview requirements apply.
These students may be beneficiaries of the same support as our US scholars and may collaborate with other AGFAF scholars during the year in the development and maintenance of impact projects.
