We want every Girl Pioneer to be able to achieve her dreams, and for those Girl Pioneers who wish to attend a post-secondary educational institution, Starfish provides support through a program called the Quetzal University Fund (QF). The fund was launched by Ted and Connie Ning in February 2015, and it provides full-ride university scholarships to qualified Starfish graduates.
The mission of the Quetzal University Fund is to ensure that high-achieving Starfish students can pursue post-secondary education, regardless of their economic circumstances. We aim to prepare young women to become agents of change in their communities, country, and our world. Currently, there are 33 Starfish graduates attending university because of Quetzal University Fund scholarships.
Starfish strives to be an efficient organization that keeps overhead costs to a minimum and reduces the impact we create by printing. We will send you a PDF recognition letter to the email address you provide if you would like a paper version please let us know and we will happily put one in the mail for you.
