Each year, as part of the Golden Key International Summit, the Michael Crossland Humanitarian Scholarship Award will be held as an opportunity to acknowledge those from Golden Key International Honour Society who have already made an exceptional positive contribution towards humanitarian issues themselves.
The recipients of this award will receive an all-expenses paid humanitarian trip to Haiti, where they will have the opportunity to work alongside Michael's Frontier Projects team on any of their projects being undertaken at Love Community Home, Light for Living Training Centre or Bouvier Mountain School.
This will be a life changing opportunity for the deserving recipients with the power of perspective being driven home to the core.
