Scholarship Fund

Scholarship Funds are Making a Difference and Leading to Graduation

The Alliance began awarding stipends in 2013 to the first class of Greenwich High School AVID graduates. Since that time and as subsequent AVID cohorts have graduated, the need for additional financial support in the form of tuition aid has become apparent to allow these hardworking students to complete their degrees.

All graduating AVID GHS seniors receive gift cards to purchase books and supplies for their freshman year in college. Beginning in their sophomore of college and continuing through to their senior year students are eligible to apply for scholarships by completing the Greenwich Alliance for Education Scholarship application. Scholarship applications are reviewed twice a year by the Alliance’s Scholarship Committee. The committee evaluates each application based on academic achievement, student involvement on their college campus, their connection back to AVID or the Alliance, and their financial need.

Scholarships Awarded Total Has Reached $400,000

Recognizing the importance of the scholarships to student outcomes, our board has designated this as a priority and has budgeted $100,000 this year. At this time, and with our current level of funding, we are only able to meet approximately one-third of the student’s tuition needs.
