True Potential Scholarships are given to Immigrants residing in Nebraska or Council Bluffs IA to attend the Community College of their choice.
True Potential supports students who have restrictions attached to their immigration status. These restrictions prohibit them from receiving public funds to attend college. Public funds include FAFSA loans and many scholarships. We believe education should be available to all, and we support our neighbors striving to reach for their True Potential. This program awards scholarships that are 100% privately funded and targeted to those who need private scholarship funds.
True Potential partners with community colleges because we know, by experience that they offer tremendous value. Community Colleges offer a wide variety of opportunities ranging from technical certificates to classes required to graduate with a four-year university degree in any field. All these opportunities come at a fraction of the cost of public and private universities and allow True Potential to make the biggest impact with every dollar awarded. The founders of True Potential Scholarship, Ross and Karen Pesek, are proud community college graduates.
