In a world where change is the only constant, a remarkable organization stands strong and resolute in its mission. Central Scholarship Bureau, founded in 1924 by Moses Rothschild, is celebrating a century of unwavering support for students improving their lives through higher education and career training. This incredible journey is a testament to the enduring power of education, opportunity, and a commitment to equality.

Central Scholarship’s philosophy that scholarships are investments, not expenses, is a perspective that resonates deeply in today’s world. It’s a viewpoint that underscores the power of investing in education to foster economic growth, innovation, and social progress. Today, Central Scholarship curates and manages scholarship investments for individuals, families, businesses, and private foundations who wish to start, transfer, and/or grow a scholarship fund with a trusted organization. With altruism being the driving force, Central Scholarship donors value the financial incentive of giving by knowing their funds are soundly invested. Thanks to the many donors who are making a difference, Central Scholarship scholars are not mere recipients of financial aid but future contributors to their communities and fields of study.
