When 49 lives were taken, 49 legacies began. Our mission is to provide academic opportunities—honoring the aspirations of all 49 Angels—to recipients who embody love, hope, unity, courage and unconditional acceptance. Working with the families and loved ones of those killed, we have established 49 annual legacy scholarships based on the Angels’ interests, careers or aspirations. As an extension of their impact on our world, these scholarships inspire and empower students who share the same dreams. The scholarship program is one of four pillars of our Foundation’s mission to create and support a memorial that opens hearts, a museum that opens minds, education programs that open eyes and legacy scholarships that open doors.
