Beat the Odds

Stand for Children is now accepting applications for our next round of Beat the Odds Scholarships.  Beat the Odds is a $16,000 award ($4,000 per year, renewable for up to four years) for students who are succeeding in school in the face of challenges such as poverty, homelessness, disability, systemic inequalities, etc.   

The application is now online for students in the class of 2021, and can be accessed here:  The deadline is September 15th at 11:59 p.m.  For many districts, the deadline falls just a few weeks into the new school year.  I am sending out this information now in hopes that students will begin their applications over the summer.
