After several weeks of deliberation by the review committee, the PEIF Fund is set to welcome its Class of 2017!
Fields of specialization were as diverse as were the initiatives embarked on by applicants. Applications exceeded the number received last year; and while impressed with the increasing interest in the program, the committee had to make very difficult decisions due to the types of projects initiated by applicants, as well as the qualifications of applicants.
From organizational leaders to MBA and professional degree holders, the entries this year collectively reflect a passion for advancement and a growing interest among youths to create change in their own communities.
The PEIF Fund plans to issue a press release introducing its 2017 Class to the public in March 2017.
