In early 2020, we were galvanized by the Black Lives Matter movement to join the effort to create a more equitable environment for those seeking career advancement through education. As an education company with a mission to make education more accessible for all, we know that true change occurs through equitable support.

This inspiration sparked a company-wide initiative to turn our values into actions. We have since launched a Financial Support Program and continue to donate to local organizations in our community.

In support of this continuing initiative, we are excited to announce the second year of the Pocket Prep Racial Equity Scholarship. The Fall application is now open.

This season we are offering five (5) scholarships to cover exam costs and an additional study support of $1,500 for individuals pursuing professional certification.

This scholarship is for members of minoritized communities, who compared to their percentage of the American population, have traditionally been underrepresented in the field in which they’re seeking certification. To learn more about why we’re focused on this group, you can read our press release.

Applicants for this round should be sitting for their exam in the spring or summer of 2023. Those sitting for their exam later in the year should wait for the next scholarship round.

Scholarship Rewards: 

  • Free access to Pocket Prep Premium study material

  • Covered Exam Registration Fee

  • Covered Exam Materials (i.e. textbooks, guides, software) 

  • Additional study support of $1,500

The U.S. still grapples with inequitable access to education at every level. The largest population facing the negative effects of this unbalanced playing field are minoritized communities.
