Education Fund

Our Mission

The Nelrod Education Fund

To provide scholarships that will enable ā€œCā€ or "Near C" students from low-income families to achieve a higher education and break the cycle of generational government dependency. Too often, these students follow the path of least resistance in the dependency prone environment and give up on higher education. It is our hope to make their choice to achieve a higher education.
