Newton METCO Scholarship Fund

February 14, 2021

As we celebrate Black History Month 2021, we mark the official launch of the 2021 Newton METCO Scholarship Fund Campaign. This coming June, 34 Newton METCO Seniors will graduate from Newton North and Newton South High Schools. As they stand at the horizon of new opportunities, we want each and every one of our Newton METCO seniors to know they have the tangible support of their Boston-Newton communities.

The members of Class of 2021 have faced unprecedented times as the pandemic exacerbates educational and economic disparities and experiences of racial injustice continue to have significant implications for our students and our communities.

Now in existence for over 35 years, the Newton METCO Community Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to deserving METCO seniors seeking to pursue a college education. Please donate to the scholarship fund today, and be a light of equity, justice, and opportunities for our Newton METCO seniors.

The new dawn blooms as we free it

For there is always light,

if only we're brave enough to see it

If only we're brave enough to be it
