The NextGen Scholarship fund was created to assist international students coming to the US. In college, P.E.R.K. president Andrena Sawyer saw how many deserving international students often lose the opportunity to pursue higher education due to the lack of funds. Because of this, the NextGen Scholarship fund was created.
