Due April 21, 2017
Students who attend GRASP's 76 high schools, who have met with their GRASP advisor, are eligible to apply. These scholarships help meet the cost of books, computers or other expenses not covered by a student’s financial aid package. The generosity of our corporate and individual donors makes Last Dollar Scholarships possible, enabling students to attend the college or technical training to which they have been accepted.
