Our Scholarship Recipients are Extraordinarily Deserving!

 

Our scholarship recipients come from Justice High School, a public high school with a highly diverse student body. They face more than the usual difficulties along their path to a college education. Among our 2018 Foundation scholarship recipients:

 

  • 74% qualified for free or reduced rate lunch,

  • 73% are Pell Grant eligible,

  • 86% speak a language other than English at home, and

  • 66% are the first generation in their families to attend college

Many of our recipients have worked during high school to help support their families or regularly care for younger siblings while their parents work. Many come from families who are unable to provide any financial support for college.

 

Despite these challenges, our recipients have persevered — taking challenging IB coursework, volunteering at school and in the community, representing Justice HS on the athletic field, and pursuing talents in art, music, and theater. With your
support, they are ready to succeed in college and beyond.

  • architecture
