Dear Scholarship Plus Community,
We are in the throes of application review for our 2018 class! We had a record 705 applications started — a whopping 32% increase from last year.
It proves to us what we’ve known all along: the need for scholarships is not going away — it is growing. We are working hard to increase our fundraising efforts to meet this need.
Spring is especially hope-filled for all of us at Scholarship Plus. We will decide on our new class in early April, and you will get the chance to meet all of them at our annual event in June.
We will be sending more details shortly.
Our students are well into their second semester at schools around the country. The first months for our newest class are always a bit bumpy — but we're there for the bumps. We checked in with them at least three times over the course of the first semester. One student described her term as “confusing, exciting and challenging.” That struck us as a pretty fair summary of the experience. We are continuously working with all our scholars to support them in the confusing and challenging, and celebrate them in their exciting moments.
Thank you for supporting us in all our moments, too.
