April Thacker Dream Scholarship:
“The April Thacker Dream Scholarship empowers human trafficking survivors further themselves in their personal development and growth. This program will challenge applicants to dream for themselves, outline their goals, and work towards achieving their goals. Our primary goal is to support survivors in defining success for their unique journey. We will work with applicants to ask “What is MY dream? How do I imagine getting there? What are my barriers and how do I address them?” Awardees of the Dream Scholarship will be given the opportunity to tackle these questions and work towards bringing their dreams to fruition.”

“A scholarship for women in transition. We believe in the transformative power of education and its ability to foster discipline, confidence, and strength. This is educational award for women who are survivors of human trafficking and currently in a transitional period of life. This scholarship seeks to propel women in the improvement of their unique skills and employment prospects through financial resources, mentorship, and professional support.”
