There are kids who are born with brilliant minds and dreams to make a difference someday. We’d like to see them achieve great heights and excited to what they can become. What kind of difference can they bring to the next generations? How they can make life easier? But the reality is some families are unable to financially support these young inventors, scientists or engineers. Getting a bachelor degree or any of the degree programs can be a lengthy struggle for majority of the families. This is a painful truth of those families whose income is not enough to support their kid’s college education. However, we are really fortunate to have companies or organizations that have the same aspirations for our kids who wants to get a bachelor degree.
