Gloria B. Lee Scholarship

The Gloria Lee Scholarship Program provides a small cohort of talented, at-risk youth who have lived in poverty with financial and academic support to obtain an undergraduate degree in STEM or education fields.

Students who are granted a place in this program are provided additional support, exposure to experiences outside their community, positive adults, and hands-on opportunities to transition to post-secondary education while working towards a career.

Young people who have lived in poverty often have limited support and lack the academic achievement, self-esteem, and habits to plan and work towards their future.  Although high school graduation is a significant accomplishment for these young people, it is not enough to get out of poverty.
