College Related, Living Expense & Tuition Shortfalls Financial Aid Recipients Face Can Derail Degree And Professional Goals
“A lot of people think if you give a kid a scholarship, now the kid’s set…
they’ve got everything they need. Nothing could be further from the truth.” Chris Metzler, director of student services at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology
Every semester our select group of college scholarship students will face college and living expenses they and their families can’t afford.

For Luz, our Supplemental Scholarship AMEX Card Opens Doors for Professional Development & Opportunities
"I’m gearing up to start my next co-op (experiential learning program) as a diver at the New England Aquarium... Here in New England, fisheries is a such a prolific industry ... I actually went diving a couple weeks ago with someone who is a professional diver in NY for an oyster restoration organization, which sounds like a cool job. Seems promising that there are opportunities to continue working on fisheries and oysters after I leave Boston.” Luz, 2021 DCI grad, junior at Northeastern University, studying environmental science & ecology.

What Damaris Has To Say About Her Supplemental Scholarship Award Card
Imagine If We Hadn’t Pitched In . . .
What A Difference A Donation Makes!
JaQuari's Emergency Tuition Gap Paid - Honor Roll Made
Had All Out for Change® not provided the “last amount of funds” that outcome, honor roll, would have been impossible; he couldn’t have registered and enrolled in spring semester classes. Thanks to a generous donor, we handed him an opportunity and he ran with it!
Franklin - "I'm going to clock into my last shift at Chipotle...
I'm so excited!"
When I called Franklin to share the news, he was stunned and bursting with gratitude.
When asked how he would benefit from the award, Franklin wrote back, "I will focus my time into my studies and work towards my career goals, the Peace Corps and Foreign Service...Thanks for all your help. God knows I would not be where I am without your constant support. All Out for Change has been a Godsend in many ways."
In his mid-September follow-up, he wrote, “I’m a part of 3 executive boards for clubs: cultural affairs director for the International Affairs Association; communications director for the Asian Association; and secretary for the Arabic club...So many things that I wouldn’t have been able to do while working at Chipotle."
"I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude to the donors
for their generous contributions.
