We encourage future scholarship recipients to volunteer and give back to their community. Volunteering allows individuals to be abreast about what is going on in their community and also being the change they would like to see.
Students can take advantage of a great cause by furthering their education. Students coming from socioeconomic stricten communities and facing socioeconomic hardships surely can close the gap between other social classes. Furthering one's education ultimately opens up more opportunites for ones self, being in a better position to land a job you want and potentially earning more income.
Parents and educaters play a vital role in student's success'. We must nuture, understand, care, spend quality time, teach and challenge their intellect. They depend on us to show them the way. Lets get involved and show them!
Socioeconomic status (SES) is often measured as a combination of education, income, and occupation. It is commonly conceptualized as the social standing or class of an individual or group. When viewed through a social class lens, privilege, power, and control are emphasized. Furthermore, an examination of SES as a gradient or continuous variable reveals inequities in access to and distribution of resources. SES is relevant to all realms of behavioral and social science, including research, practice, education, and advocacy.
We believe that socioecnomic status and education plays a large role in society. At the Rahman Alim Scholarship, Inc we would like expand the distribution of resources, equalize the access to education and close the gap between those who may face socioeconmic hardships or coming from socioeconmoic deprived communities versus those that may not.
