Adopt A Scholar

Adopt A Scholar

In 1989, the Foundation initiated an Adopt-A-Scholar program wherein local corporations and individuals assume the financial obligation of a Board-designated scholarship(s) at the current award rate. Adopted scholars are required to maintain regular communication with their sponsors. A diligent effort is made by the Board to pair a sponsor with a scholar having similar interests and career pursuits. If you would like to adopt a scholar, please contact us.
