It is a well-known fact that education is the key to moving up the social economic ladder. Education also provides individuals with the ability to understand and find common points of connectivity across cultures. As we live in an increasingly “global world” we all must seek to find bridges, points of commonality, across the multitude of cultures that have come together during the 21st century. Muhammad Ali, guided by his six core principles, can bring peoples from different cultures together like no other person. To carry Muhammad Ali’s legacy as global unifier, the Muhammad Ali Center will be sponsoring the Generation Ali Global Citizenship Scholarship Program.
The program is administered by Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America. Scholarship Management Services is the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.
