Nehemiah Project Scholarship Program
Thank you for your interest in the Into-Africa Nehemiah Project Scholarship Program. This program is administered by the Into-Africa Foundation, a national, non-profit organization dedicated to helping create a healthy environment in which children can grow, learn, and attain a healthy, prosperous, and free future.
Into-Africa sponsors the installation of water wells and the construction of multi-purpose building that serve as medical facilities, schools, and churches in towns and villages in various nations across Africa. In support of this, we organize yearly Development Teams that provide medical treatments, construction, and training where ordinary people can use their particular skills to impart knowledge and ability to the local community. For many Africans, these teams are the spark of inspiration and capability that propels them to self-sufficiency and prosperity. The people who go on these missions pass on more than just a skill; they impart hope and help build a better future for these communities.
Because of the nature of our organization, we ask that each applicant provide an essay describing what their role in a Development Team would be. Please tell us what skills you hope to offer (either present skills or those you would learn in the next four years), your own personal vision for an African town or village and the difference you would like to make there, and what you expect to see happen in your own life through this experience.
Thank you for your interest in the Into-Africa Foundation and our Scholarship Program. We look forward to receiving your application.
