Any youth who has participated in an ROP program, such as an academy, charter school or transition program, may apply for the Passageway Scholarship.
I was able to obtain my high school diploma from ROP and was accepted into Metro State. I am the first person in my family to attend college...I would like to say thank you for helping me accomplish my dreams by awarding me this scholarship. Not only do I appreciate this, but my entire family, from my parent to my children, are greatly appreciative of this blessing.
My voice cannot convey the appreciation I have for the Passageway Scholarship Foundation. Thank you for helping me attain a quality education. Thank you for showing me that good people do exist, and for inspiring me to be the best one I can be.
I became so determined when I received that acceptance letter. I wanted to be the first generation college graduate from my family. I wanted to be able to say that even though I came from nothing, I still have a bachelor’s degree and a successful job. That’s why I am motivated to continue furthering my education.
