Supporting education for those who can't afford it on their own.

I think it would be cool if there was a fund where people in certain professions could contribute directly to students that are studying in the same area. I think people really enjoy helping others and when it's a person in their own field it's like a comararderie. I think that supporting trade school is just as important as supporting college but much cheaper. It takes all kinds of people to contribute to the world.

A good idea. But much depends on the person. Not everyone will want to raise a competitor for their own money.

Great idea. It would help the student feel like someone in the field was a resource because they helped them to achieve their educational goals. It would be mentorship on another level that gives the student confidence.

I just suggested this as a sponsorship idea to UTC community ( - I think we'll see it branded as The UTC Challenge!
