For every Human Trafficking Survivor.

Every gender. Every age. World-wide.

The Coco Berthmann Scholarship exists to provide Survivors of Human Trafficking with higher education. If you are a Survivor of Human Trafficking, please apply. 

We also encourage anyone who believes that they were trafficked to apply. Many Survivors do not understand that they have been trafficked due to current misconceptions and associations about Human Trafficking. We have a professional team in place that can assess each situation individually.
