College affordability is a very important issue impacting the future economic strength of the country. The lack of financial resources proves to be the main obstacle that prevents students from attaining a college education. With college tuition and related costs escalating, the financial resources needed to support a college education constitutes the most serious challenge for many families, where in most instances, the younger generation has to work full time to contribute to the household income.
The Project Scholars scholarship program seeks to identify and assist dedicated and deserving students that wish to obtain a baccalaureate degree at a college or university. Our scholarship program provides financial support for the entire undergraduate process. For most students this amounts to $10,000 over a four-year period. Scholarships are administered by the Community Foundation of South Lake, and applications are available beginning January 1st each year.
And because we recognize the challenges of higher education are not limited to finances, each of our students is paired with a mentor who is a carefully selected community member, usually involved in the very career that the student aspires to. Our mentors are caring individuals who can help our students through the variety of challenges that they will inevitably face. The financial support coupled with our mentor program provides a strong combination for increased success at the undergraduate level. Our personal involvement with each student communicates how important they are to our organization and community.
