Q: Do I need to train at Guardian to receive this scholarship?
A: Not necessarily. We will likely favor students training at Guardian as we get our feet wet with administering this new program, however we would be willing to support a student training outside the area at another academy or gym if the same criteria was met.

Q: Where can donors donate to the scholarship program?
Q:Can donors choose a specific child to sponsor?
A: For privacy reasons and other concerns, we do not allow that. However, we maintain a separate account for our scholarship funds. None of those funds are used for general purposes of running the organization, solely for scholarships.
Q: Do you offer other types of scholarships other than community college?
