i.am Scholarship

The i.am scholarship program provides future visionaries, leaders and innovators with financial assistance for post-secondary education. In 2009, will.i.am launched the i.am scholarship program. The program works with effective partner organizations to identify qualifying students in need of financial support. i.am angel selects students with a proven record of accomplishment and gives them the opportunity to chase their dreams through scholarship.

"I know my purpose is to continue to inspire young people because it’s just going to keep inspiring me back. I want to do my part. I want to invest in America’s future and I want to send you to college. i.am here to let you know that you can be anything you want to be. You are the future of the world." — will.i.am

To date the i.am Scholarship program has directly invested more than $700,000.00 in America’s future. Recently, the i.am.angel Foundation committed over $100,000 to the inaugural i.am College Track class from Roosevelt High School as an investment in their future. Every student will have the opportunity to add to that investment through attendance, academic performance, student activities and community involvement.
