About Us Meet the People Behind ISSF

Our most precious resource on this planet is our youth. I believe in education. I believe in investing in our youth to make the world a better place for generations to come.

- Greetings from Our Founder & CEO, Daymond E. Lavine -


The founders of the ISSF are driven to encourage success-focused youth to excel beyond any given set of unfortunate circumstances they encounter. Thus, we provide scholarship opportunities to qualified applicants at both the local and national levels.

Mission Statement

The ISSF is especially focused on encouraging "triumph over tribulation." Thus, we target students who have overcome unique socio-economical challenges.
