Nashville Beat the Odds
In spring 2012, Stand for Children Leadership Center will award three scholarships to college-bound Nashville public high school seniors who have "Beat the Odds" by succeeding in school despite daunting obstacles.
About the Program
Our Beat the Odds Scholarship program aims to raise awareness about the challenges that prevent too many of Nashville’s young people from succeeding and to emphasize the critical role that education plays in helping students meet those challenges. Stand for Children Leadership Center believes that ensuring that young people graduate high school and get some post-secondary education is a fundamentally important quality of life issue not just for students, but for every Nashvillian. Three scholarships will be awarded in May 2012 for the 2012-2013 academic year.
