Scholarships & Tuition Assistance

 
Hopkins House is committed to ensuring that all children have access to its preschool academy, regardless of their family's income.  To this important end, we have established the Children's Scholarship Fund.  Through the generosity of our donors, Hopkins House offers tuition assistance to low-resourced, working parents.  
 
Grants from the Children's Scholarship Fund are authorized by the Scholarships & Recognitions Committee.  The Committee, composed of volunteers, not only review applications seeking scholarships, but offer themselves as a resource to help parents to develop and manage their household budget.  Our goal is to work with parents to help them to become financially self-sufficient over time.
