The program is open to all North End residents who will be attending a tuition-based school in the 2018/2019 academic year, as well as those attending public school. Students attending tuition-based schools will be eligible for a cash scholarship. Students attending a public school will be eligible to win a gift card to Staples to help with the cost of school supplies.
The deadline for submitting an application is Tuesday, May 8th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. Applications can be mailed to NEAD at 30 North Bennet Street, Boston, MA 02113 or dropped off there and put in the NEAD mailbox. Late applications will not be accepted.
