Dr. King Scholars Program

The Dr. King Scholars Program since 2009 has provided three or four $3,000 scholarships annually to MLK Charter School students, invested to be paid for college expenses. The students are picked based on academic achievement, role model behavior, and parental involvement in school related scholar events.

The web site of MLK Charter School’s partner, Youngscholarsfund.org, includes a video clip that describes the program.  The Dr. King Scholars Club provides peer support, supportive adults, and enrichment activities.
