Los Angeles nonprofit organization Infinite Possibilities Community Foundation, Inc. is awarding scholarships to deserving, underprivileged, or inner-city youth who are beginning or already attending college in the Fall of 2016.
These scholarships will be available for those college students in community colleges or universities across the United States.
IPCF Inc. Founder and President John T. Casey MSW, MBA is a former foster youth who emancipated at age 18. He grew up in a broken home and witnessed domestic violence, death, drug use, fatherless homes, gang violence, and the lack of positive role models in the inner-city areas of Los Angeles.
Education was his saving grace, as he was provided an opportunity in the form or a scholarship. He was able to attend a community college and received his AA degree. He then transferred to a California State University, where he received his Bachelors degree, two Master's degrees (MBA, MSW), and is currently pursuing his Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree.
The reason why he started Infinite Possibilities Community Foundation, Inc., he wanted to provide the same opportunities to others that he received.

If it was not for individuals or organizations like these, some underprivileged youth may never attend college or receive a higher education.
