Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope

Our goal is to improve the quality of life for children and families across the nation who face major challenges. Samsung is dedicated to meeting the needs of these children and their families through on-going partnerships with elite athletes, print publications and channel partners.

Samsung's Four Seasons of Hope supports community-based foundations and charities headed by some of this country's favorite sports legends. Samsung pledges to raise national awareness and funds for these outstanding charities and to find ways for others to make a difference in the lives of children and families.

Since its inception in 2002, Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope and our Hope For Education programs have raised and provided more than $20 million to schools and the charities we support across the country. Beginning in 2009, Samsung will advance these programs by combining the Hope for Education initiative within Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope umbrella to expand their reach and success.

Over the past five years, Hope for Education has provided millions of dollars in Samsung technology and Microsoft software to more than 270 K-12 schools across the United States in an effort to reduce the technology gap within our education system. Our education imitative will continue this mission now as a part of Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope, which will in addition support the charities involved in the program.

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW)

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity.

What is MIT OpenCourseWare?
MIT OpenCourseWare is a free publication of MIT course materials that reflects almost all the undergraduate and graduate subjects taught at MIT.

OCW is not an MIT education.
OCW does not grant degrees or certificates.
OCW does not provide access to MIT faculty.
Materials may not reflect entire content of the course.
How do I register to use MIT OpenCourseWare?
There is no registration or enrollment process because OCW is not a credit-bearing or degree-granting initiative.

Can I get a certificate?
No. MIT OpenCourseWare is a publication of the course materials that support the dynamic classroom interactions of an MIT education; it is not a degree-granting or credit-bearing initiative. However, you should work through the materials at your own pace, and in whatever manner you desire.

How do I find what courses are available? How do I search your site?
A site overview is available for MIT OpenCourseWare. You can also browse courses by department or use the advanced search to locate a specific course or topic.

High school students and educators should check out Highlights for High School.

What it takes to support this work

Each course we publish requires an investment of $10,000 to $15,000 to compile course materials from faculty, ensure proper licensing for open sharing, and format materials for global distribution. Courses with video content cost about twice as much, but your feedback about the significant value of these video materials helps to justify the cost. Learn more.

Education Pays -- Get Yours

The Education Pay$ — Get Yours campaign is designed to show you that opportunity, stability, hope, happiness and success are in your grasp. How? Through education!

Cleveland State launches scholarship program for incoming freshmen

Cleveland State launches scholarship program for incoming freshmen

Cleveland State University


11:19 am, November 13, 2009

Cleveland State University has launched a new scholarship program that will apply to incoming freshmen in fall 2010.

Under the Freshman Scholars Program, full-time, incoming freshmen with at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and an ACT score of at least 23 or an SAT score of 1060 will be eligible for a $3,000 scholarship from the university. Their economic situation will not be a factor.

“We created this program to help incoming freshmen and their families at a time when they are looking for an outstanding education at a reasonable price,” said Rob Spademan, assistant vice president for marketing and admissions at Cleveland State. “This new program gives parents a way to recognize and reward their children for maintaining good grades and test scores while in high school.”

The scholarship is renewable for three years as long as students maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA and are enrolled full time. Annual undergraduate tuition for full-time students at Cleveland State is about $8,000. Students must apply for the scholarship by Feb. 1, 2010.

These selected students will have the opportunity to receive a $7,000 scholarship for their first year of college.

• Have attained a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale at the time of graduation

Benefits as an ACLU Youth Activist Scholar
Past scholarship winners were recognized for a wide variety of civil liberties activism including:
• Creating and teaching a class for middle school students that aimed to lower the risk that they would enter into the "school-to-prison" pipeline
• Challenging a principal's policy of punishing students for writing “gay pride” on their arms and notebooks
• Working with school officials to ensure that intelligent design would no longer be taught in the public schools
• Starting an organization to get teen girls involved in the decisions that affect them, such as policies on sexual harassment and access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare
