Summary

We all share a dream of a better future. At EARTH University, our students--most of whom come from disadvantaged, rural communities around the world--share a commitment to making that dream come true. Today, you can buy a dream & help deserving young men and women from around the globe become leaders of change for a more prosperous and just society. All gifts will be combined to support EARTH University's mission of preparing leaders to contribute to sustainable development & a just society.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Rural areas in the developing world are often where the fewest opportunities exist. At EARTH, we make a special effort to recruit from rural communities with more than 70 percent of our students coming from rural areas. EARTH University completely finances 50 percent of the cost for all of its students through an endowment and, thanks to the support of donors around the world, provides additional need-based scholarships to approximately 80 percent of all of its students.

How will this project solve this problem?

EARTH offers a rigorous four-year undergraduate program in agricultural sciences and natural resources management and a prestigious, international faculty, providing a world-class scientific and technological education that emphasizes values, ethical entrepreneurship and environmental and social commitment.

Potential Long Term Impact

EARTH's approach to education encourages alumni to return home to share knowledge and create opportunities. More than 86% of our alumni have returned to their home countries as job creators and agents of lasting change for a sustainable future.
