CHICAGO, December 28, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Inspire11 announces the launch of the Eleven Scholarship. The Eleven Scholarship supports underrepresented minorities and first-generation college students to secure access to higher education. For the 2022/2023 school year, the Eleven Scholarship will award two students pursuing an undergraduate degree in a STEM field of study with $5,000 towards their education. Students will also be offered mentorship aligned to their field of study throughout the school year.
The Eleven Scholarship launches as part of Inspire11's greater purpose and commitment to "Inspiring a better tomorrow for ALL." The Scholarship is a momentous step toward establishing an Inspire11 Foundation later in 2022. "If businesses are more human than ever before, then we need to take care of humans like never before," said Alban Mehmeti, CEO of Inspire11. "The Eleven Scholarship and our greater plans to establish a charitable arm of Inspire11 will guide us applying our 'beyond what's expected' mentality to make radical and tangible impact in the communities we live in and around the world." The Inspire11 Foundation will form in 2022 as Inspire11's nonprofit social enterprise, working towards donating 1.1% of its equity, service, and employee time to communities around the world.
