Nonprofit organizations that advocate for youth from under-served communities have until July 1 to apply for a grant from Sun Life Financial.
Through the Sun Life Rising Star Award program, the company will give a $50,000 grant and other unique resources to each winning organization. Additionally, as part of the application process, each organization can nominate an exemplary student for a $5,000 Sun Life Rising Star scholarship.
To be considered for a Sun Life Rising Star Award grant, organizations must have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and promote skills that directly translate to educational success in high school to students under the age of 21. Applications will be reviewed by a local judging panel consisting of community leaders and senior-level educators.
