An annual $10,000 scholarship open to high school seniors who have been accepted into an institute of higher learning (college or trades).
Applications close February. Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the school in March.
“I see every day through the eyes of my children how hard and stigmatizing it can be to have a parent who is incarcerated. I also know how empowering it feels to be educated. I am combining both of these feelings to help give these kids a shot at a better life. A life that does not have to be defined by the poor choices of their parents.
The Annual $10,000 scholarship is awarded to a student who currently has an incarcerated parent. It is not academic-based, because I know how hard it is to maintain good grades when your home life isn’t stable.” – https://vmgfoundation.org/
