It is an enormous benefit that Bright Future students may attend college classes without having to pay tuition out of their own pockets. However, college carries many non-tuition expenses as well, including but not limited to items such as books, lab fees, and other supplies that the student will retain after completing the course. In addition, individual students may have personal issues that arise which impact their ability to attend class, such as transportation problems.
Bright Future Dollars for Scholars fills this gap by funding solutions for any barriers that might prevent a Bright Future student from fully participating in the college certificate courses. The average award is $869.10 per student. Here are a few examples of recent awards extended to students:
Blood pressure cuff
Daycare and a supply of diapers
Since 1999, Bright Future Dollars for Scholars awarded a total of $168,411 to 194 students from 24 high schools in six school districts.
