Fundraising & Financial Aid

Where there is a will, there is a way.

While the advantages of attending our programs last a lifetime, shorter-term financial realities can make attendance a challenge for some qualified scholars. With that in mind, we have created both a scholarship program and an in-depth fundraising guide.

Scholarships

For over 25 years, a central aspect of Envision EMI has been our desire to reward high achieving students and ensure the diversity of our programs. As a result, we have created and make available a limited number of needs-based scholarships each year. Of course, the number of applicants is greater than the available funding, so if you’re interested in applying, please do so at your earliest convenience.

To see specific scholarship information, deadlines and to download a scholarship application, please visit our Program Overview page, click through to the program you are planning to attend and follow the link to the Tuition & Financial Assistance tab.

"I earned all my money through fundraisers i did myself … I wrote a letter to people from church and school … asking if they have any knick knacks they wouldn't mind me selling for a garage sale fundraiser. I also did a bake sale, but that didn't turn out so well... ;-)"

Fundraising

Beyond scholarship funding, one approach we highly recommend all applicants consider, is taking greater ownership of your experience by helping to offset at least some of the cost of their tuition through fundraising.

In fact, over one-third of our scholars fundraise part or all of their tuition.

To help you do the same, please visit our Program Overview page, click through to the program you are planning to attend and follow the link to the Tuition & Financial Assistance tab. There you will find a student fundraising guide featuring helpful, step-by-step suggestions and activities.
