MARY C. TIEDEMANN SCHOLARSHIP FUND

RIVER FUND approaches access to education as the main, realistic tool for our families to move beyond the lines of poverty. The insurmountable costs associated with higher education can make a tremendous difference for students - staying in school or dropping out. Mary C. Tiedemann Scholarship Fund helps to relieve pressure and offers bridge grants to students so that they can focus on their education with the goal of completing their degree. Supporting students, throughout their educational journey, not only leads to individual outcomes within their field of study, but more importantly, their gainful employment.
