Opportunity

Dedicated to creating paths to brighter futures, The Johnson Scholarship Foundation has invested in possibilities for over twenty-five years. Through thoughtful planning and strategic partnerships, The Foundation has built a network of innovative funding programs and progressive relationships with some of the country’s most respected and important community programs, schools, colleges and universities. Through the vision of our founder, Theodore R. Johnson, the Foundation has quietly and confidently enabled the education of thousands of disabled, economically disadvantaged and Indigenous Peoples.

With a mission of hope, encouragement and dedication, The Foundation believes that through education, all things are possible - careers are born, citizens become responsible and people become productive members of society.

Education creates opportunity for all.
