The Ursuline Sisters Scholar program helps college students from low-income families achieve their academic goals through mentorship and financial assistance. The program’s objective is to break the cycle of generational poverty through post-secondary education. The program provides resources that address the individual hurdles faced by each student.
We pair students with a volunteer mentor who serves as a support system and offers guidance for students eager to reach their goals. Financial assistance is available to address basic needs for food, clothing, and transportation. The scholar’s program helps alleviate the barriers that can keep a student from graduating and empowers them to overcome obstacles in their lives. Scholarships and grants are available for academic-related needs. Workshops on topics such as financial management, time management, and study skills are offered to the students in the program.
Through our most recent fiscal year 11 students were served across Trumbull County. There are currently five students enrolled in the program in Trumbull County. Beatitude House is requesting funds to help support those seven students in the Ursuline Sisters Scholars program. These funds will be used for all Trumbull County students should additional students enroll.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
When the pandemic hit, many of our funds had to be diverted to meet our client's additional emergent needs for items such as food and utility assistance. As all of our clients have very low or no-income we provide most of their basic necessities.
In addition, many clients and their children needed assistance as they transitioned to remote learning.
Many grant funds have been deferred to emergent Covid-19 needs during this time, and a number of our fundraisers had to be canceled.
Our scholars program is constantly growing with more students in need of help.
