Break The Cycle Scholarship Fund 2020

Dear Family, Friends, & Colleagues--

On behalf of the Break The Cycle Scholarship Fund, we are excited to announce that for the fourth year, will be offering a $500 award to an eligible senior at Hope High School and Central High School.

Last year, we were honored to have selected Walter Jimenez & Lydia Boakye as the 2019 recipients from Hope and Central High School. Walter & Lydia  have amazing stories, and we will be sure to provide you an update on how they're doing as their first year of college comes to a close.

We hope that you can join us in helping to get the word out to Hope & Central seniors. As founders, and as former college advisors, we understand that 'scholarship fatigue' is VERY real. That is why we are proud to offer a scholarship application that recognizes the perseverance and resiliency of Providence students and is user-friendly, easy to navigate, and free from the traditional bureaucratic requirements that are far too often embedded in scholarship applications.

In the years to come, we hope to increase the award and expand this scholarship to other high schools in Providence. If you're interested in learning more about the scholarship, please visit or email us at [email redacted] 

Yours in Service,
