YOUTHS AND STAFF ARE INVITED TO
Apply Now for the 2021 Scholarship
The PbS Scholarship Award was created in 2016 to encourage and support post-secondary education for youths and staff at PbS facilities. Youths who are, or have been, incarcerated face tremendous barriers to advancing their education, accessing transcripts and earned credits 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.
This year, thanks to the generosity of the Annie E Casey Foundation, $10,000 will go directly to youth scholarships. We also recognize the important role that facility staff play in supporting youths to reach success and thanks to the Casey Foundation donation we have also been able to put more towards staff scholarships as well — doubling the amount of previous years.
The application period for Spring 2021 is now open!
