Maurice Lucas Foundation Howard Hedinger Scholarship Fund
Since 2012, the nonprofit Maurice Lucas Foundation has been helping Portland middle school children succeed in school and life through its ML20 Academy Program. For those students with the desire to pursue secondary education, the foundation has established a scholarship program to further their success in life.
Our goal is to provide a renewable scholarship to every graduate of our ML20 Academy who meets the eligibility requirements. These scholarships will be up to $1,250 per year for up to four years (a maximum of $5,000).
Students who participate in our academy will be eligible for a scholarship if they meet these criteria:
- Graduate from high school in a timely manner with at least a 3.25 cumulative GPA,
- Enroll as a full-time student at a two- or four-year college or trade/technical school,
- Maintain at least a 3.25 cumulative GPA at their post-secondary school,
- Volunteer 20 hours or more for their community each year they remain in school.
How Can You Help?
The foundation is now seeking donors to help establish this scholarship fund. We expect our first class of eligible students will graduate high school in 2019 and, with your help, scholarships will be available to all who qualify.
