The Yarrow & Osafo (YO) Scholarship

The YO Scholarship/Foundation was co-founded by Moriam Yarrow and Elise Osafo and funded by their profit from investing in the clothing company PRGRSSN. They decided to use that profit to give back to their community in hopes of making an impact on someone’s life. The Foundation is awarding 1 applicant with $300. The founders’ ultimate goal for this scholarship is to provide opportunity for underrepresented groups.
