Newspring Scholarships grant students $5,000 every year. Each recipient must reapply for subsequent years. Our goal is not only to enable students to attend college but most importantly to graduate. We have been blessed with very generous donors who make our scholarships possible. Donors have the satisfaction of knowing that a very deserving student will be the first in his or her family to attend college.
