Scholarship applications are carefully selected by a panel of staff at Sounds True. Each application is carefully reviewed and considered based on the application criteria and the number of scholarships we have to allocate.

We are aligned in purpose, but we are separate organizations. The Sounds True Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization while Sounds True is a for-profit incorporated company.

The two organizations work closely to help make transformational education widely available to social leaders and communities in need.
