providing scholarships to our students

The Magnus Foundation is a reflection of our commitment to empowering tomorrow’s leaders, and provides scholarships to graduating seniors in our community who are pursuing higher education. With a diverse blend of funding both from within the Magnus community, as well as from community partnerships, we passed a very proud milestone in awarding our first round of scholarships to student leaders in June 2020. These students are outstanding leaders both in and outside of Magnus Karate, and will continue to prestigious universities in the fall. Through the Magnus foundation, we look forward to contributing to the professional aspirations of the young adults in our community, and helping to build the bedrock of our future.
