Community Funded Scholarships & ACHIEVE Scholarship Program
In 2017 the Foundation launched a new customized scholarship software platform by WizeHive! Students apply online for scholarships which eliminates redundant tasks and paper applications. Our new system is so easy and user friendly that we saw a huge increase in the number of scholarship applications submitted.
The scholarship application portal was available on December 1st. The deadline to submit scholarship applications was 5pm on February 1st. Selection committees are in the process of reviewing applications. All applicants will be notified mid-April by email. Please see below for more information about our scholarship program.
