The DeVry Education Group Scholarship Fund is now the EMPOWER SCHOLARSHIP FUND!

New name reflects our purpose of “Empowering student success through scholarships”

The Board of Directors of the DeVry Education Group Scholarship Fund is pleased to announce that as of August 8 it is changing its name to the Empower Scholarship Fund! The new name highlights the impact of scholarships on continuing students and the ongoing purpose of the fund to provide scholarships that empower academic success.

“It’s an exciting time as we move on to the next chapter in our support of student success,” said Tom Babel, the Chairman of the Empower Scholarship Fund. “Our new name is a reflection of our impact on the lives of the students. Year after year we hear stories about how receiving a scholarship has helped these students not only continue their educational journey, but has been an empowering affirmation of their hard work and aspirations.”

The Empower Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity that strives to keep education within reach by providing scholarship support to continuing students, especially those with the greates need and who have established a successful academic track record. The Fund operates in cooperation with the Adtalem Global Education colleges and universities, but is a separate entity that helps empower students to achieve their academic and career goals.

Since 2012 more than $3.6 million in scholarships have been awarded to nearly 2,300 students. As testimony to the success of the Empower Scholarship Fund mission and the generous support of many colleagues, alumni, corporate partners and friends, the retention rate for student scholarship recipients over 5 years is 87%.
