Once students complete the Next Level Scholars program and receive their scholarship, support doesn’t end there. To help ensure post-secondary success, students are engaged through the alumni network; participating in community service days, leadership opportunities, events, and more! All scholarship recipients are automatically a member in the Alumni Network.
