KEAN LIFT: Scholarships for the Thinking Creatively Design Camp

Last spring Kean University announced the launch of Kean LIFT, the University’s own crowd-donating platform that connects Kean students, faculty, and staff to friends who are interested in funding specific projects to help “lift” them to success.

The current Kean LIFT campaign is Thinking Creatively Design Camp. High school students with art talent don't necessarily understand that their special gifts can provide a pathway into college and, eventually, into rewarding careers. Talented students without financial resources are even less likely to imagine that college could and should be part of their plans. If we can fund scholarships for these students to attend the successful Thinking Creatively Design Camp, a summer camp that explores careers as well as expanding their creative thinking, we may put them on a path to college and career success. With the Camp experience, the students find their way in design, set goals for college, and walk away with confidence and creative juices flowing! Tuition is $1,000. For each scholarship raised, you may be supporting the next Milton Glaser, Michael Graves, or Jonathan Ive!

Please consider supporting this effort by donating online. Your entire donation is tax deductible. You will receive a gift receipt from the Kean University Foundation. Please also share the link with as many of your social networks as possible:
