Newton METCO Scholarship Program

  • Newton METCO Community Scholarship Fund
     
     
     
    The Newton METCO Community Scholarship Fund began twenty years ago to recognize and support Newton's METCO students. Over the years, the Committee's membership has included residents of Newton and Boston, as well as faculty and staff of the Newton Public Schools. Many individuals and businesses in Newton and Boston have supported the Scholarship Fund with their generous donations. 
  • We have set high goals to help our students attend the colleges and universities they will be accepted to.  Let's raise $35,000!!!  How? If each Newton METCO family contributes $10 and have 10 of your friends contribute $10 each, we will make our goal of $35,000 to support our graduates!!!  We got this?? Please post and share via email, Facebook, and twitter.  Be a model for your friends and contribute $10 now! http://www.gofundme.com/newtonmetcoscholar
