"Pay It Forward" (PIF) + The Giving Pledge (TGP) +
Solution - Combine::
The Solution is actually easy, educate the majority of people about, money & business. 99% of the people need access to more and better understanding about money & business, equal to or better than the wealthiest people in society. Only then can the world tap into billions of minds that can create new companies and new jobs.
Qopolis University Business School can help solve the many problems listed above, on a global scale.
Financial Aid - "Pay It Forward" (PIF) + The Giving Pledge (TGP)
Qopolis University believes that the key to economic growth, for any country, is the financial and business education of a majority of its citizens. A country with a huge percentage of its people, with a great education in money and business, will succeed with a good and grow economy. A country with a majority of its citizens UNEDUCATED in Money & Business matters, will have a stagnant and faltering economy. Research shows that all countries in the world have a very small percentage of people with an education about money and business. This is directly related to their economic problems.
In the United States, the richest top 10% of the people, own and/or control almost 90% of all the wealth in the United States. The educational system in the United States and most other countries, has college tuition so expensive, that only the richest people get higher education or those who would go deep into debt. The Irony is, the education taught in 99% of all universities, including in the United States of America, is FREE information any person can find in a public library or online for no cost. Even the top university degrees in Harvard, Yale, Princeton and others, simply "teach" information that is FREE in libraries and online for no cost. Yet, these colleges charge a very large tuition and book fees to students to learn their curriculum, even though all the information taught in all their classes is FREE, Public Domain information. Why do universities charge for FREE information? Because they can.
The worst part of the problem is that 90% the FREE information they teach to students is not very applicable to a student's future income and job. Additionally, the educational system is now setup to put mid and low income students and families deep into debt. The debt gives them only a piece of paper with no real applicable/useable education or guarantee of employment any more. Once the student and family are deep in debt, while colleges are paid so much money, the graduated students expected to go out alone to find a job. The newly graduated students usually find only jobs which pay little. In the United States fewer companies are being created every year and fewer well paying jobs are available for the growing number of college graduates. Many graduates with MULTIPLE degrees are not finding any thing but entry level positions that do not allow them to pay off their student loans for decades.
Through generous pledges and endowments by wealthy sponsors and governments, the "Pay It Forward" (PIF) program was created for the many students who, due to tough economic times or income issues, cannot afford the normal tuition of $7,500 a semester ($60,000 4-year degree) and student fees.
We currently have PIF financial aid for the following groups in varying numbers per group available due to directed eligibility. As PIF packages are awarded the numbers change until all packages have been awarded. If you are a student who makes LESS than $150,000/yr. income and you are in one of the following groups, then you may apply for one of the available PIF packages. If all packages are awarded already in a group, then you may qualify through a different group. More packages are available as more sponsors pledge support.

Many Sponsors have pledged support for students who are not in the USA. Some sponsors are Americans and some are non-Americans. Their pledge determines how many packages are available for those specific groups. Qopolis is in contact with several different countries that wish to pledge support to have students from their country attend Qopolis. However, until details can be finalized as to the amount of the pledges, the countries and number of packages will be listed as Coming Soon depending on when finalization is expected with those governments. Once the pledges are finalized and all documents are signed, then the number of packages available for students from that country will be added.
