The Erudee Scholar Approach

Over the years, organizations have provided educational support to students from low income countries who were deserving of scholarships.  These scholarships were overwhelmingly provided to traditional universities and other places of higher learning NOT located in the student's country, but in more affluent countries.

While this has provided wonderful educational opportunities to these students, it has also encouraged a "brain drain" from the native countries, as many students opt to remain in the country or region where they studied.

Follow our story of how the Erudee Foundation's approach differs from this traditional process and why we believe it strengthens both students and their local educational institutions. 

Student challenges

The Foundation's Approach to Solving the Challenge

 he Erudee Foundation provides students in Low-Income countries with the opportunity to participate
in world class education in the areas of the Science, Technology, Arts, Education,  and Mathematics and to have access to a future that will improve their lives and the level of technical expertise while remaining within their countries.

We believe educational opportunities and outcomes can be optimized by attending local higher education institutions, in order to benefit from peer interactions that form the basis of traditional learning strategies.

The Erudee Foundation’s approach is based on identifying, qualifying, and fostering the use of best-n-class educational providers to provide a flexible, quality approach to post-secondary education through which a student’s progress can be monitored and evaluated in real time.  Scholarships are made directly to the educational institutions thereby using a  rigorous approach to verifying student achievement.  

The feedback mechanisms established by the Foundation provide ongoing support and encourage student success in a way that has had a real and measurable impact on individuals and countries. Our funding of local schools improves the regional educational infrastructure and encourages the supplemental use of online curricula.
