The Power-Up Scholarship Program enables students to earn scholarships by engaging in activities throughout the school year that align with the Pathway to Empowerment.
Throughout the 2020-2021 school year, Power-Up students participated in several events, including: Workshops on resume writing, fiscal responsibility, and interviewing; community service activities; job shadowing and internships; trips to the Cleveland Zoo and Holden Arboretum; Sustainability Series involvement; Empowerment Dialogue series; virtual CareerFest and OFIC online professional development modules; Empowerment Week activities, and much more. Power-Up students are always encouraged to go “above and beyond” each year by participating in more than the required number of events and by getting involved in a variety of LEC activities and programs. Based on the quality of their reflections, the following students went above and beyond this year and will receive a $2,000 scholarship for the 2021-2022 school year. Congratulations to these students!
Students who participated in and reflected upon at least three events each semester each received a $1,000 scholarship for the 2021-2022 school year. Congratulations to these students!
These Power-Up Honorary students took advantage of the various personal and professional development opportunities available to them and fulfilled all program requirements even though they were not eligible to receive an additional scholarship. These students serve as great examples!
At the beginning of the 2020 academic year, Eric Evans, Director of Career Development, asked internship supervisors and internship faculty advisors for Excellence in Internship nominations. Following the fall and spring internship mid-term evaluations, all nominations were reviewed and shortlisted by faculty advisors and the Director of Career Development, who then met with Financial Aid to award scholarships.
