US Bank First Generation Scholars Grant
U S Bank invested $7500 in 2014 in the First Generation Scholars Class of 2019 and have pledged to invest $7500 per year through Scholar graduation in 2019. U S Bank and the Foundation for DCPS provide adult mentors who work with Mentor Teachers and students to help students prepare to become successful college graduates. Students in the program are first generation (they do not have a parent or guardian who have a four-year degree).
Mentors work with Scholars to improve their college resumes. Scholars are also taken to various college campuses to explore college options.
If you are interested in becoming a Scholar Class sponsor, please contact Executive Director Vicki Quisenberry via email or by phone 270.231.5583.
