more than $170,000 in Tuition Support Given to Date
In just five years of offering the Generation Hope Scholar Program, we have provided more than $150,000 in tuition support to teen parents in the D.C. area.
Generation Hope Scholars are attending 18 two and four-year colleges all across the region. These students are receiving up to $2,400 per year in tuition support until they graduate from our program.
Each year the number of applicants grows. In fact, in July 2016, we will welcome our sixth class of Scholars -- 34 teen parents. Generation Hope board, staff, and major donors will come together to welcome them during our "Meet & Greet Luncheon" which follows a morning of mentoring training to ensure the success of their relationships with their Sponsors.
To date, Generation Hope has identified, recruited and supported 86 teen mothers who have collectively received $170,000 in tuition support to make a college degree attainable. We have celebrated 19 college graduates, and 13 more are expected to earn their degrees in May 2017.
