Broad Foundation to Award $250,000 in College Scholarships to MCPS Seniors


The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation will present $250,000 in college scholarships to members of the graduating class of 2011—a reward for MCPS’ selection as one of five finalists for the 2010 Broad Prize for Urban Education. The prestigious national prize was awarded this year to the Gwinnett County Public Schools in Georgia.  MCPS was chosen as a finalist because of its success in raising student performance and narrowing the achievement gap between income and ethnic groups. This was the first year that MCPS was selected as a finalist for the prize.
