Five SCO Youth Receive FPWA Educational Opportunity Scholarships
September 6, 2022 / Independent Youth News
We’re happy to share that SCO youth Marvin, Oumwatie, Lamar, Rayhona, and Kervin will be receiving FPWA Educational Opportunity Scholarships for the 2022-2023 school year!
FPWA announced that they will be awarding $40,000 in college scholarships to sixteen low-income junior and senior college students to support them through graduation. The Educational Opportunity Scholarship is one of many efforts at FPWA that advances economic equity by helping remove some financial barriers that often prevent our city’s youth from reaching degree completion.
Congratulations Marvin, Oumwatie, Lamar, Rayhona, and Kervin, and thank you, FPWA, for believing in our youth and helping them pursue their dreams!
