As we celebrate ten years of helping ensure careers for students of hope and need in the Omaha community, Avenue Scholars Foundation is excited to announce a new and substantial addition to the support and resources it offers to students. Through the generosity of the Suzanne and Walter Scott Foundation and the ongoing support and partnership of Metropolitan Community College, all students who successfully complete the Avenue Scholars program at our eight partnering high schools will have the opportunity to continue their career/technical training as an Avenue Horatio Alger Scholar. 200 Avenue Horatio Alger Scholars will receive an $8,000 scholarship to MCC, along with dedicated, individualized support from ASF Career Coaches and MCC College Success Navigators as they persist toward a career in a high-demand career/technical field.
This innovative model is being promoted in conjunction with the Horatio Alger Association’s Career and Technical Scholarship Program, which nationally awards over 1,000 scholarships of up to $2,500 each to students pursuing a career/technical credential.
In addition to their shared focus, both of these programs share another common element – the extraordinary support and vision of Mr. Walter Scott, Jr. On behalf of Avenue Scholars Foundation, the Horatio Alger Association, and career/technical students of hope and need in Omaha and across the nation, we thank Mr. Scott for his incredible generosity.
