The Give Back program is dedicated to providing scholarships and mentoring to students who’ve faced adverse challenges during their youth—such as the incarceration of a parent, homelessness and foster care. The scholarships in Kansas, funded by Veronica and Peter Mallouk, work to change lives and communities through education. Aside from monetary support, the Give Back scholarship works to serve as a resource of both educational and personal support for students as they pursue a college degree.
