Transforming opportunities for students

Helios Education Foundation First-Generation Scholars number in the thousands. Some students pursued associate degrees which led to careers in public health, while others pursued bachelor degrees that led them to teach. Regardless of profession, all 2020-2021 Helios Education Foundation First-Generation Scholars exemplify the transformational power of education.

Meet the Scholars


Education Changes Lives and Strengthens Communities

Motivated by the transformational power of education, in 2006 Helios seeded endowments with both the Florida College System and the State University System of Florida to support scholarships for first-generation students. In the last decade, Helios has supported degree completion for scholars who’ve not only achieved their academic goals, but now contribute to their communities as successful college graduates.
