About

Act Six is a leadership and scholarship program that connects local faith-based community affiliates with faith- and social justice-based institutions of higher education to equip emerging student leaders to engage their campuses and communities at home. The Act Six initiative believes that emerging leaders, with the right opportunity, support, and inspiration, can combine their natural gifts and passions with a college education to create a new kind of bold, visionary leadership that will transform our campuses, our cities, and our collective future. Act Six identifies and rewards scholars who are passionate about learning, eager to foster intercultural relationships, willing to step out of their comfort zones, committed to serving those around them, and want to use their college education to make a difference on campus and in their communities at home.

Every two years all Act Six students are required to attend a Convention that costs $150 each of their own money and they have to pay for transportation and hotel costs as well. We would like to lighten the financial burden on these young leaders to make sure they are able to attend the convention with little or no cost to them at all. 

Also, the 28 students who are awarded the Act Six scholarship are provided with tuition and scholarship support but that doesn't include EFC (Expected Family Contribution) depending on their Financial Aid package. We would like to create a Contingency fund $500-1,000.

The Act Six Scholars will benefit from these funds to lighten the financial burden and focus on their academics, creating and making positive change on campus and in their communities. Access to these funds will allow students to continue focus on being change makers and while being full time students.
