Four Pillars

SCHOLARSHIP

While most scholarships and grants cover tuition, housing and food, many students are left with the financial cost of physically getting to college. To support deserving seniors, each year the Mitch22 Foundation provides financial support for college start-up.
Scholarship funds can be used for dorm room set-up, travel to college, lodging or as a means to show students that their determination to finish high school despite obstacles is being rewarded. In addition to financial assistance, each recipient receives a new laptop and printer.
