UPO Academic Scholarship

Organization: United Planning Organization

College isn’t cheap. We all want our children to have the opportunity to continue their education, but the financial reality often makes that dream difficult to achieve.
Since 1990, UPO has helped ease the burden of college hopefuls and their families by awarding scholarships. Currently, UPO gives $10,000 annually to each of 5 deserving DC high school students who want to improve their lives and their community by continuing to learn.
We know that being the first in the family to go to college or being away from home for the first time can be scary, overwhelming, and stressful on students and their families, so we also provide ongoing encouragement, support, and assistance to scholarship recipients.
Application: For more information about our scholarship opportunities, contact UPO Youth Services Division Director De Angelo Rorie at 202-610-2796.
