How our special awards and funds were created

Through contributions made to the 21st Century Workforce Fund, the Imagine America Foundation is able to offer additional awards to students and career college representatives. In less than a decade, more than $1 million in cash grants has been awarded to more than 800 career college students through the Imagine America Promise and LDRSHIP Awards.
