I would like to expand the Scholarships & Fellowships investment to include career changers or new employment opportunities such as vocational training, technical trades, and apprenticeships
Goldbelt, Inc. (GBI) currently provides only $180,000 for its shareholder scholarship program. We have over 3,500 GBI shareholders. How can this amount be adequate, especially as educational costs increase?
GBI must significantly increase scholarship funding. It should also anticipate emerging needs of shareholder wanting to pursue different types of economic opportunities. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, Fellowships should be available for shareholder pursuing advanced degrees that cost more than two-year or four-year programs.
Shareholders should have financial aid if they want to attend technical trades, vocational training, apprenticeships.
