Success Grants available to CPS students (posted 12/7/17)
The City of Columbia and the Shelter Insurance Foundation announced that seniors at Battle, Douglass, Hickman, and Rock Bridge high schools are eligible to apply for Success Grants to help fund their college and vocational plans. This is the second annual competition for Success Grants.
Awards will be made to three seniors who demonstrate financial need and good character, have at least a 2.5 GPA upon graduation, and who complete a service project in one of three neighborhoods identified in the City's 2016-2019 Strategic Plan.
The Shelter Insurance Foundation will give an annual $1,000 grant, which may be used for tuition, fees, books, and housing, to each student who completes a neighborhood service project. Grants may be used at the two- or four-year accredited college, university, or career/technical school of the student's choice.
