As of October 2019, there are 323 students identified as Scholars of Promise program students in three cohorts. To date, Madison College Foundation has made 218 awards to Scholars of Promise students totaling $309,106. The average GPA of these students is 3.1!
Additionally, through Madison College’s Digital Equity initiative, Scholars of Promise students were able to receive free laptops to use for the academic year. The goal of this initiative is to reduce the barrier of students not able to access technology while away from campus. Over 73 students have received laptops! The program is hoping that it helps improve student retention and academic success.
