Imani Fund

Imani: n. faith and belief.

Inspire young minds.

The Imani Fund will encourage exploration and cross-cultural understanding through supporting the study abroad experience of selected students in the Maryland Scholars Program.

Hong Kong group photoThe Maryland Scholars Program provides first-generation college students from underserved socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to experience a life-changing liberal arts education. Although Goucher does provide assistance for the study abroad experience, many Maryland Scholars Program students need additional support.

The Imani Fund helps cover costs associated with this formative experience.

Your actions can shape students’ futures, and teach one of life’s most important lessons—global understanding.

“I will never forget my study abroad experience in Spain. It changed my life, but it can be expensive. It can be a struggle to pay for a passport, visa, luggage, or a plane ticket. With the Imani Fund, finances won’t be as big of an issue for students in the EOP. You may think some of the costs are small, but even a little bit makes a difference.”
