We stand with the African American community in the push for social justice. In 2020, IEC created the “Be the Change” Scholarship program in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. With this scholarship, we seek to honor students who have the passion, drive, and commitment to be an agent of change for social justice. The Be the Change Scholarship is now offered annually at United Education Institute and UEI College. As part of the scholarship application, students submit an essay about how they strive to be an instrument of change, and how racial injustice has impacted their own lives.
