Education contributes to economic development and family security, and all people should have access to high-quality education.The Celia Lipton Farris and Victor W. Farris Foundation funding in this area is focused on ensuring:
- The availability of scholarships at outstanding high schools, colleges, and universities, particularly to deserving individuals to attend and succeed at these schools.
- Access to education and research programs in the “STEAM” fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.
- Access to innovation and entrepreneurship education and research.
- Access to programs that provide tutoring and enrichment activities designed to prepare students to succeed in high-quality academic environments. These programs should emphasize long-term relationships with students, and be able to demonstrate the academic success of participants.
