Dear Donors, Friends, and Community Partners,
For everyone’s safety and to help curtail the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to close our office until further notice beginning Thursday, March 19, 2020.
During this time, our dedicated staff will work remotely as we continue to operate and deliver our services. Staff will maintain their regular work hours and be available for calls, emails, and meetings by phone or video conference.
Current and potential scholarship recipients can be assured that all scholarship operations will continue as normal. Our application deadline for high school seniors is still set for Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 2pm and will remain unchanged. For information or questions, contact our Operations Director, Jenny Tice at
NEW Scholars, our college readiness programming for underserved students in grades six through twelve, will also continue. However, we will shift from our normal after school programming to an online format, which will continue until further notice. For more information or questions, contact our NEW Scholars Director, Carmen Lax at
