GOGO Charters National Scholarship for Immigrants and Refugees


As a youth, GOGO Charters founder Armir Harris immigrated to United States with his mother and sister. In a few short years, with less than a thousand dollars in his pocket, Harris created a multi-million dollar empire in the world of charter transportation technology. Harris worked long hours while living a minimalist lifestyle and making savvy technology investments. As a shining example of the American Dream and a gesture of his gratitude, Armir Harris now wants to give something back. GOGO Charters proudly offers the National Scholarship for Immigrants and Refugees. It is his goal to give hope to future refugees, immigrants and first-generation U.S. citizens in search of the American Dream. Scholarships are $10,000 per year for up to one academic year and can be used at any accredited public, private, technical college or university in the United States. A minimum of one award will be made each year.
