Arthur J. Schmitt believed that skilled, educated, and compassionate leaders were the source of hope for a better world. He challenged students to "figure out a place for yourself in the world, and then do something about it."
Reflecting Arthur J. Schmitt's responsible stewardship to his community and the world, his Foundation financially supports high school, college and graduate students who embrace this philosphy, who need opportunity, and who represent our country's rich diversity.
"The Foundation commits resources for scholarships and leadership programming for students who show both great financial need and great promise to be leaders of change - students who envision, lead and work to transform negative patterns and problems into solutions." Carla Slawson, Executive Director
