Challenge Scholars offers a way for families on Grand Rapids West Side to cover the costs of education after high school. Starting in 2020, students who stay on track and graduate from Union High School will attend college or technical training tuition-free. We see families working hard to be successful and we want to do our part and help pay for college or technical training. Challenge Scholars is a way for you to make your dreams for your kids a reality by putting a college education within reach. You do not have to do it alone. Your community is all in. Grand Rapids Community Foundation partners with Grand Rapids Public Schools and other organizations to fund Challenge Scholars.
