New Hope Scholarship Program

A good education is vital in today’s world. Knowing this, CRN created the New Hope Scholarship for deserving, promising students who live in shelters or group homes.

Growing up in a shelter or group home often means frequent moves and new schools, a lack of personal attention from a caring adult, and a shortage of basic school supplies. These challenges make it difficult for children to maintain the B average that is required to qualify for Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship.

Here at CRN we believe every child deserves the opportunity to further their education after high school and no child should be hindered by the circumstances in which they grew up.

Since the programs origination in 2005, CRN has awarded 105 scholarships with the help of community partners including, The Georgia Compassion Project, the Osiason Educational Foundation, the Robert & Polly Dunn Foundation, and the John & Mary Franklin Foundation.

For the 2018-2019 school year, we had a record-high of 7 New Hope Scholarship graduates! These students are among some of the most resilient, strong, and driven young adults that we have had the pleasure of working with and supporting. We would like to congratulate these students on their incredible accomplishments and wish them well as they continue on their journeys towards the exciting futures that lie ahead of them. 

To apply for the New Hope Scholarship, applicants must submit:

  • A personal letter explaining why s/he should be chosen
  • A letter of recommendation from a teacher or shelter staff
  • High school records and extracurricular activities
