These awards are intended to recognize the extraordinary promise of our students and the amazing work being done to support them across the country - A celebration not a competition.
Between August 15th and September 30th we will be accepting nominations for awards that focus on the courage, vision and heart of reengaged students and the adults who serve them. We are encouraging nominations of at promise students and committed educators, policy makers and other program administrators who are making a difference across the country. There will be five Courage Awards conferred with a $1,000 scholarship for each of the five students! Recognizing that at-promise students often need support in the transition from high school to college and career training, this year's awards will come not just with a check, but with a commitment. RAPSA commits to work with each Courage Award Recipient to address post-secondary institution obstacles as students move into the next phase of their lives.
