Five $5,000 scholarships to be awarded as part of

LifeNets 25th anniversary


It’s time to create new opportunities and honor our donors! 


Since its founding in 1999 and in addition to its many humanitarian relief projects, LifeNets International has awarded nearly 2,000 academic and individual workforce training scholarships around the world. LifeNets scholarship recipients have since qualified and begun careers as engineers (electrical, industrial, computer science), physicians and nurses, IT professionals, accountants, attorneys and legal professionals, architects, agronomists, forestry professionals, English and specialized teachers, and many trades. The vast majority of these scholarships were awarded to young people living in developing countries. Lives have been changed and elevated.


Reflecting the values of service espoused by LifeNets (including passing on of the gift received through service), these scholarship graduates have gone on to serve others in their regions. Many of their stories are featured on our LifeNets website.



Lives enhanced, new professionals now serving


These scholarships were largely made possible by the selfless donations to LifeNets from people and companies in the United States and Canada. In honor of these regions and as part of the celebration of LifeNets’ first quarter century of service, LifeNets will award five scholarships of $5,000 each to students pursuing academic and vocational training in the U.S or Canada. This represents the first formal LifeNets scholarship program for these regions.


The application for the five scholarships is downloadable from
