The Level Playing Field’s vision is founded in a deep commitment to social justice and equal opportunity of education for the purpose of developing successful individuals and building strong communities. Through fundraising for scholarships, we believe that no student should be declined or left behind for lack of financial resources. The Foundation realizes that postsecondary education is vital for traditionally underserved populations, including minorities and the economically disadvantaged and is committed to equalizing the opportunity of access to higher education for individuals from all walks of life, creating a life-changing opportunity that they otherwise would not experience. Empowerment is the cornerstone of the scholarship program. We believe that by providing financial assistance, individuals will become empowered to develop their true potential and meet the challenges of the 21st Century workplace with intelligence, competency of skills, and practical knowledge.
