Through the years, the Post-Secondary Success Department has seen a lot of the success of the Maya Angelou Public Charter School graduates. With that, we have also seen a lot of struggle that has made it hard for quite a few. This scholarship is for just that! The best candidate would prove to be resilient—the two recipients (alumnus and current graduating classman) would have a proven history of being able to rise to the challenge. This scholarship is to be used as a support, not the reason the candidate was able to keep moving forward. We are offering the following:
5 awards of $500 each:
2 (male and female) for 2016; 1 for 2015; 1 for 2014; 1 for 2013
