The KSA scholarship fund, which fuels these transformative opportunities, is a testament to our dedication to making a meaningful difference in the lives of students. Originating from a portion of proceeds generated by the sale of trash liners, our commitment to social responsibility and community impact has remained steadfast. Furthermore, in a proactive effort to amplify our impact, we have pledged to allocate $0.25 for every Welcome Kit sold, effective July 1st, 2023. This strategic initiative reflects our ambition to surpass our target of $1 million in scholarship funds by 2032.

With this year’s scholarship disbursements, FORT International has reached a significant milestone, surpassing $175,000 towards our overarching goal. As KSA continues to extend its reach and deepen its impact, we remain dedicated to fostering partnerships that align with our values. In line with this commitment, we are proud to announce our support for the DC Chapter of C-CAP (Career through Culinary Arts Program) through the awarding of a $1,000 KSA scholarship. Separate from the $50,000 that was awarded to the 21 winners.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the winners and express our gratitude to our supporters and partners who make these initiatives possible. Together, we will continue to empower future generations and create pathways to success through education.
