ScholarCHIPS provides scholarships and a support network for high school graduating seniors with parents in prison. They all have to be affected by having an incarcerated parent or immediate family member. They can be U.S. Citizens or non citizens, have children, live on their own, or plan to attend a community college, post secondary school or vocational college. For the first year, applicants must be residents living in the District of Colombia, Maryland, or Virginia. This scholarship program does not discriminate on the basis of race, family background, education, or religion. We seek to lower the rate of high school dropouts, and juvenile detention admittance levels by giving urban youth mentorship and financial support.
