Making their communities better

Alisa’s Angels scholarship recipients have gone through a rigorous selection process. The most important criteria is service to others. Our recipients have given thousands of hours of their time to better their communities. Just a few examples:

- Started a nonprofit to build schools in Africa.
- Founded a grief support group for high school students who have lost parents.
- Started a nonprofit to address bullying in middle schools.
- Raised almost $100,000 for a children's hospital by riding a bicycle across the USA.
