GRASPS Program

Graves, Reid And Sangal Performance Scholarship (GRASPS) Program

The vast majority of Burlington Housing Authority’s 368 families living in public housing have a strong desire to enhance opportunities for success for themselves and their children.  Through education they can visualize a better life. 

Scholarship Awards are approved by the Scholarship Advisory Board and distributed to eligible students at the start of each semester.  Scholarship amounts will be determined by the amount of annual funds received from the public and private sectors as well as individual donations.  These funds can be used to pay for tuition, books and other school related costs.  Scholarships will be forwarded to the school, university or bookstore.
