The Power of Light Foundation Scholarship Program-Power of Light Foundation is a non-profit corporation providing annual scholarships to highly motivated Christian high school and college students excelling in STEM programs such as math and science and preparing them for careers in medical, engineering, and technology industries.  

STEM programs are vital to the world's future.  We believe that gifted students will be able to help solve many of the problems our world is facing today by applying scientific suggestions and solutions.  To help these students we have created the Power of Light Foundation to help them to focus on the issues of science while not being overly concerning with how to pay for a semester of science & math classes.
