Grants for students

One way he has decided to make that investment is to provide grants to high school seniors and college students who have come up with a solid technological idea.

After the students submit a plan, Hope personally reviews the plan and decides if the student will receive a grant ranging from 500 to 5000 dollars.
Everyone can be a philanthropist
Hope focuses a big portion of his life on philanthropy, especially the work that is being done at the SENS foundation. He believes that everyone can be a philanthropist with a little guidance. According to Hope, the first step is finding what exactly it is that you are passionate about. Next, are looking to help out an organization on a local level or national? Are you going to be donating money or your time, or are you able to do both? Lastly, do your homework and talk to the people within your circle and see what organizations they support. One person can make a difference.
