High school freshman have the opportunity to sign a scholarship agreement with PGKP making them a GRAD scholar with the promise of a scholarship for post-secondary education—if they meet eligibility requirements:  graduate in four years or less, participate in two Summer Institutes, attend College-Career Fairs, participate in Career Exploration Field trips and graduate with a 2.5 minimum GPA.   PGKP is particularly focused in these efforts and supporting students to meet the requirements because ultimately high school graduation and post-secondary education define life outcomes for young adults.

Thanks to our many past and future donors for making our unique scholarship program a continued success!
