Supporting Educational Opportunities
PbS Scholarship Award
The PbS Scholarship Award was created in 2016 to encourage and support post-secondary education for youths in PbS facilities. (A similar scholarship award is available for staff.) Youths who are incarcerated or who have been incarcerated face tremendous barriers advancing their education, accessing transcripts and credits earned and applying to colleges, vocational and technical programs because of their system involvement. For those who are accepted and make it to the point where the remaining barrier is funding, the PbS Scholarship Award gives them the final boost they need.
The application period for Spring 2020 is currently closed. Thank you to all who applied!
