What is my obligation to “pay it forward”?

First and foremost, the emphasis is on investing in future generations of scholars by supporting their academic and career goals and second, by pledging to pay for the tuition of two persons, who are not related by blood, adoption, or marriage, during their lifetime. This moral commitment is to fund the then current cost of tuition at the same level of education as received from the Foundation.  For example, if a scholar receives a grant equal to 50% of their tuition costs, then, at the time they “pay if forward”, they need to determine the then cost of a comparable education from their institution and make contributions equal to 50% of that tuition cost.
