The American Educational Scholarship Fund, Inc.’s mission is to provide solutions to the increasing cost of college for students. Our purpose is to contribute to a world where all students have equal access to education. AESF positions itself as an effective mentoring organization in an effort to contribute to the development of future leaders and contributors in our immediate community and the world. AESF has a long history of contributing to educational organizations and mentoring young people. As the demand for assistance increased, a more systematic approach was needed to adequately reduce the financial barriers for students. Thus, AESF’s new mission and organization were born.
