Newton METCO Scholarship Fund

We wish our warmest congratulations to over 40 METCO seniors from both Newton North and Newton South high schools who celebrated their graduation on June 3, 2020. Immersed in the two pandemics of deeply-rooted racism and the devastating COVID virus, these courageous young people need your support as they pursue their goal and realize their dream of earning a college education. During their high school careers, they have achieved academically, contributed to their local and school communities, and raised social justice consciousness in the cities where they learn, work, and live. We are confident that they will continue to be change-makers and justice-makers who create the conditions for more ethical and compassionate neighborhoods, communities, and societies.

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. Let us continue to join together to lift and empower these amazing young people on their journeys.
