New Hope Scholarship

65 percent of all jobs require some form of postsecondary education.

A good education is vital in today’s world. Knowing this, CRN created the New Hope Scholarship Program. We designed this program to help deserving, promising students who are experiencing homelessness.

Growing up in a shelter or group home often means moving and changing 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 required to qualify for Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship.

Here at CRN we believe every child deserves the opportunity to further their education. No child should struggle or be held back by the circumstances with which they grew up.

Our New Hope Scholarship Program began in 2005. Since then, CRN has awarded 105 scholarships. This was made possible 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.
