More scholarships for "Boys Hope Girls Hope" students
The students at the Baltimore-based Boys Hope Girls Hope group home are having quite the summer.
Not only are students celebrating a newly-renovated home by the biggest home remodeling network show in the country, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," but their appearance inspired two local colleges to offer four-year scholarships to the youths who shared their stories on the show.
And another school has stepped up to help them prepare for their free college education.
Cristo Rey Jesuit High School said this week that they are also providing a college preparatory education for the young men and women of Baltimore’s Boys Hope Girls Hope. The scholarships will cover 100 percent of the cost of a Cristo Rey Jesuit education for four years, including tuition and books, as well as application, registration and SAT course prep fees.
The school, which two Boys Hope Girls Hope youths already attend, has also pledged to provide scholarships to Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars in the future.
