Description

The SchoolHouse Connection Youth Leadership and Scholarship Program is available to graduating high school senior students who have experienced homelessness within the past six years. This can be defined as: temporarily staying with other people (couch-surfing/doubled-up), staying in emergency or transitional shelters, staying in substandard housing, or staying in motels, campgrounds, cars, parks, abandoned buildings, bus/train stations, or any public place. You must plan to attend a community college, four-year college/university, or trade school to be eligible for this award. Selection is based on academic merit, essay submission describing your experience with homelessness and career goals, and letters of recommendation. Selected recipients will receive a scholarship award and an all-expenses paid trip to a National Awards Ceremony as well as academic, professional, and personal support/mentorship.
