At edX, we believe that education has the power to change individuals and that individuals have the power to change the world. Yet, access to high-quality education—and in some cases, access to any education at all—has been a privilege of the few. We are launching the Access for All scholarship campaign to drastically increase the number of learners edX can help gain access to life changing education, especially during a time of economic struggle and job loss caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Requests for financial assistance on edX increased exponentially over the past year, up 240% from June 2019 to June 2020, with the biggest spike of 30,000 requests from March 16, 2020 - June 7, 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are supporting these learners by creating a dedicated scholarship program to help them reach their potential. As a non-profit, we’re uniquely positioned to bring together philanthropic organizations to create a scholarship program that gives back directly to our learners. Charitable gifts have always been an essential component of our funding; $50M to date of fundraising has been raised to support our mission.
