SCHOLARS PROGRAM

“There are two ways of exerting one’s strength: one is pushing down, the other is pulling up.”- Booker T. Washington

The ONE Project is committed to making a difference by bringing people from different backgrounds together to address social needs through education and volunteerism. Our goal with the Student Scholars Program is to create a network of young people who are deeply invested in giving back to the community and provide them with the resources, ideas, and training to carry out their visions for the future. 

 

Through the generosity of our community, the ONE Project will award 6-8 high school sophomores/ juniors each with a $500 scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded in December in their junior/senior years upon completion of their Community Service Project.
