While graduation did not look the same as it had in previous years, the scholarship committees were impressed by the students hard work and diligence with a special “hats off” to finishing strong during quarantine.  Nicci Crowley, Onward! deputy director, stated, “This year we had a record number of applications received. Even with the March downturn in the market, we were able to support an outstanding number of students with over $69,000 going out for the 2020-2021 academic year.”

 

Onward!’s scholarship application cycle opens January 1 and closes April 1. For more information on application eligibility or to donate to one of these scholarship funds, visit Onward!’s website at www.onwardfoundation.org.
