Arbol Seed Fund

The Arbol Seed Grant

The grant for supporting FGLI college students

Shaping the success of future generations

The increasingly expensive cost of education calls for a solution to keep more students in school and graduating.

What the Grant provides

Up to $1,000 in financial aid

Students will receive up to $1,000 in financial aid each semester until graduation to help alleviate financial stresses. The money is for the students and does not have to be paid back.

Financial Fitness

Students gain access to monthly financial knowledge sessions where they can learn budgeting and planning to help better prepare for expenses in college and beyond.

Certification

By obtaining an Arbol Seed Grant, the student becomes Arbol certified which shows the student has thoroughly undergone the process. This certification can be displayed on your profile to increase chances of receiving extra funding from supporters.
