20140402_183838Pure & Co is committed to education. We believe that education can be the catalyst to make the world a better place. Therefore, we offer scholarships to staff, and young men and women from various backgrounds and regions of the world. Scholarships are awarded based upon established academic commitment, need, and most of all, proven and potential leadership ability.

We at Pure & Co are proud that we are able to support the scholastic aspirations of those bright, determined, and potentially visionary students who would otherwise be unable to attend a quality school, further their academic pursuits or soar to the heights they were destined for.

We are proud of those we support, how much we are able to support and also how we offer our support. Many in the company have a voice in where charitable donations go, and therefore organizations and students have an entire company supporting them. We refuse to offer money blindly. We give money to worthy organizations and students with potential to make the world a better place. Their long term success is our ultimate goal, and that requires relationship building as well as financial support.

Young men and women who are awarded scholarships begin their education with a support system. They receive frequent check–ins from staff. Many students are moving to a new area or country to study and we want our students to be successful, and understand that the hardest thing about moving to a new place may not be the exams! We do everything we can to ensure these new leaders of the world are happy and healthy, as well as getting a superior education.
