Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 17 gennaio 2019

Freestone Capital Management, a West Coast wealth management firm, has opened the application period for its second-annual Freestone Future Leaders Scholarship, which seeks to award five college-bound students with a $5,000 tuition scholarship for the fall 2019-2020 school term.This is the second year Freestone has offered the Future Leaders scholarship program, which reflects the firm’s commitment to provide $100,000 in financial support for 20 students who are dedicated to pursuing higher education and becoming leaders in their communities.
“We know that students in our community are working hard to pursue their ambitions, and we want to help empower them to reach their goals,” said Gary Furukawa, founder of Freestone Capital Management. “That’s why Freestone is committed to investing in the next generation of leaders by recognizing their talent and helping to support their educations in a meaningful way.”The organization is currently accepting scholarship applications from graduating high school seniors, or undergraduate college students currently enrolled full-time in an accredited two-year, four-year, technical college or university. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2019.Strong candidates will be those who demonstrate a commitment to improving their communities and who possess an entrepreneurial spirit. To determine the finalists, Freestone’s selection committee will evaluate applications for the strength of response to an essay prompt, among other criteria.“We understand the challenges of paying for college and we want to help more students pursue their dreams and benefit their communities,” said Erik Morgan, a senior partner at Freestone Capital Management. “We believe that higher education unlocks the doors to opportunity, and we are excited to see how our scholarship helps these deserving students thrive.”
Freestone launched the Future Leaders scholarship program in 2018, and in its inaugural year awarded $25,000 in scholarships to five students in Washington, Oregon and California. Scholarship recipients expressed outstanding community involvement, aptitude and entrepreneurial skillsets. The recipients’ community involvement included leading youth organizations, supporting people experiencing homelessness, mentoring disadvantaged students and more.
