Friday, October 19, 2018
Today, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced the launch of the GRAD Last Mile Fund, an innovative scholarship program to support students heading into their last semesters at Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) and four other local colleges.
Launched in partnership with the Frieze Family Foundation, the GRAD Last Mile Fund will provide up to $2,500 to students for whom financial hardships are a barrier to cover non-academic costs such as transportation, rent and child and medical care. Candidates must be Boston residents and have demonstrated financial need.
