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.
Congratulations to our 2020 Scholarship Winners!
