Support Students in Education

Funds go to SPi Global Scholarship: Honoring Marva Collins  

2021 scholarships will be awarded to Black undergraduate juniors or seniors pursuing degrees in Education. We want to encourage and enable students to focus on their university training so they will soon be ready to reach out and share their energy, devotion, and skills with our children.

This year we honor Marva Collins, a pioneer in Education. Collins, a Black woman who was passionate about learning, once said, “All children can learn. For thirty years, we have done what other schools declare impossible.”

In 1975, she founded the Westside Preparatory School in Chicago’s Garfield Park neighborhood. The school enrolled children who were considered “unteachable” or “problem” students. After a few short years, the success rate of her students led to national recognition for Collins’s methods and multi-layered approach to education. Remembering Collins will inspire next-generation Black educators to carry on her work.

Please join us in raising $10,000 by April 15, 2021 to award the first scholarships of this annual fund.
