How We Support Student Success
Application opens December 1
What We Do and Why
For many low-income families the cost of higher education, despite federal aid, is burdensome and intimidating. For most students, changing their economic condition is nearly impossible without access to post-secondary education. It offers greater employment opportunities with higher earnings. Access to education is only a component of changing the economic condition of low-income students from challenging communities. Financial literacy coupled with the principled act of serving is grounded in research and endorsed in practice as game changers to escape poverty.
Propel Scholars Award (PSA) is a scholarship program that provides renewable scholarships to students from low-income communities according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Students must be Pell grant eligible or have an Educational Family Contribution of 10,000 or below. This scholarship aims to reduce the financial burden of college and break the cycle of poverty by incorporating financial literacy and service work as formalized program activities.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
