The Homer Fund is pleased to announce that they are starting to accept applications for their Orange Scholars Scholarship Program for the 2022-2023 academic year. The foundation is trying to have a beneficial outcome in their partners’ lives genuinely. The Fund perceives how costly post-secondary training can be and was set up in 2006 to extend and look for alternate ways of showing its help for their partners. Subsequently, the Orange Scholars Scholarship Program was made. Orange Scholars offers grants to partners’ kids based on monetary need and scholastic execution, just as community contribution and initiative. Monetary need is given the most noteworthy thought. Around 2006, around 15,000 understudies got grants adding up to more than $36 million to assist with covering the cost of going to college. Every year, up to 1,000 grants are granted to qualifying candidates in sums up to $2,500 each.
The Orange Scholars Scholarship Program eligibility is that the candidate should be the dependent of a full-or part-time hourly associate of The Home Depot and its auxiliaries, The Home Depot Canada or The Home Depot Mexico, at the hour of utilization. The candidate should be a current secondary school senior or a current college first-year recruit, sophomore, or junior, intending to select as a full-time undergrad understudy in the fall of 2022. The candidate should go to a certified, non-benefit two-or four-year school/college or trade school. The candidate’s parent/lawful guardian should be a Home Depot associate for something like one year as of November 1, 2021, and should be a Home Depot partner at the time the grant is granted.
The Homer Fund is a philanthropic trust made in 1999. Since 1999, the Fund has given more than $200 million to more than 150,000 partners needing shelter, food, clothing, and funeral expenses through its Direct and Matching Grant programs.
