For my project, I will be creating a scholarship program for the school. In this project, I hope to relieve some of the stress of finding scholarships with the money you need for college, or any other post-secondary learning institute. In my project, the students who are interested in the program will become members once they are signed up and those who are academically qualified will become members that are qualified for the various available scholarships. When signing up for this program, the students will be required to complete the attached application, with parental consent.
My project will have a positive impact on the community because I will be teaching or directing them towards a more stress free plan when it comes to college money. The school, as well as the community will benefit from this project, because I could possibly alter the statistics on the amount of African-American students receiving scholarships for college.
This project is designed to be sustainable so that it can be taken over by future students. In this project, I want to establish a committee or board to run this program, so that after I leave, I can be assured that this project will be in good hands and can be ran swiftly throughout the years of UPHS. The chosen committee would have to be academically stable, and goal oriented amongst other requirements. I plan to also have some other adults to contribute to this committee by being the ones who maybe add on to the committee criteria and keep this project in tact. This committee would recruit members three times a year and control this project so that it can easily be passed on.
