This scholarship will enable families to bridge the financial gap so that they can afford to provide their kids with an excellent education over a longer period of time. All Atlas families will receive an annual scholarship starting at $200 per child enrolled at Atlas. Every year, the scholarship amount will grow $50 per child. The scholarship will be paid out quarterly and will be contingent on families attending parent teacher conferences as well as a minimum number of programming events. In addition, the student cannot be truant or expelled at any point in the year.
Families will sign a contract each time they receive scholarship funds stating that they will only spend the funds on items related to ensuring their child receives a consistent and excellent education. This includes, but is not limited to: school supplies, clothing, healthier food, transportation costs, after-school activities, glasses, home computer, healthcare expenses, and a more stable housing environment. The maximum scholarship amount received per child would be $600 per year for a student in their 8th year at Atlas.
The Atlas Family Scholarship is a pilot program and scholarship funds come from private donations and grants and are guaranteed through the 2016-2017 school year ONLY!
