Hopeworks announces a partnership with the Townsend Scholarship program thanks to a generous gift from Judy Nadell and John Langan. The program includes an academic scholarship and stipend. By providing a scholarship to cover tuition and fees as well as a minimal stipend for living costs, the program allows young people to focus on what’s important – education and achievement. Additionally, the program provides careful mentoring and coaching for students. These emotional and academic supports help students receive the life skills they need to grow and thrive not just in college, but beyond and in their careers.
Another component of the program is the idea of paying it forward. Young people participating in the program don’t just receive benefits, but also provide them. The Townsend Scholarship program helps students discover their own talents and how they can use them in return to benefit their entire community.
