Books and Beyond Scholarships
You can continue to impact students′ lives by supporting this scholarship program, which was created as a matching challenge of $35,000 five years ago. Today, the match challenge is $100,000.
Contributions to the Books and Beyond Scholarship Program will assist deserving students
who demonstrate financial need. Scholarships will go directly to students so that
they can purchase needed books, computers, school and lab supplies, and meals. Funds
will also help students pay modest account balances that will allow them to register
for the next semester.
Please consider sponsoring at least one $500 scholarship, and remember your purchase will be matched dollar for dollar.
