Our Mission

The School of ACE Scholarship aims to help industrious students accomplish their dreams. Each year across the United States, thousands of intelligent, hard-working students face financial barriers that can make continuing their education beyond high school appear impossible. Despite years of high grades and numerous extracurricular activities, many students lack the means to pursue higher education. Pursuing higher education often transforms dreams into reality- which is why we’ve set up the School of ACE scholarship.


At ACE, we believe money should never be a barrier to achieving your dreams. Our mission is to inspire and empower students in the United States to enroll in and graduate from institutions of higher education by awarding ten selected applicants with $2,500 each to finance their education however they need, whether that’s paying tuition, finding affordable housing, purchasing textbooks, or securing a laptop. 


We also believe in the power and importance of financial literacy. To that end, part of our mission is to promote financial literacy among young adults today. We do so by encouraging our applicants to outline their ideas on financial literacy through an essay that reflects their passion and understanding of this important theme. The more we can promote financial literacy among today’s young adults, the less barriers there will be towards young people securing a bright future.

Our Values

Here are a few values we hope to uphold through our scholarship:

Nurturing the Next Generation

Speaking of smart investments, we believe that the best investment the country can make is in the next generation of citizens. We value the potential that young adults have in changing the world and building a future worth living in. We hope our scholarship can play a small part in nurturing the next generation of leaders and thinkers.



Above all else, we value the pursuit of education in all its forms. Therefore, our application process encourages students who apply to educate themselves on the topic of financial literacy. We believe this will help them better develop skills they need to make education a priority in their lives.


Life throws countless obstacles in our way that can make giving up seem like the right thing to do. But we highly value the students who can pick themselves up and keep trying, searching for every possible avenue to achieve their dreams. We hope to be the proof these students need that hard work and perseverance can see you through to the end.
