Supporting Our Students
Athletic and Enrichment Scholarships are made available with Kyrene Foundation funding. Studies support that students who are involved in after-school and enrichment programs feel more bonded to their school and demonstrate improved academic performance. The Kyrene Foundation supports this by dedicating funds annually to provide athletic and enrichment scholarships for students who would otherwise be unable to participate.
Each year the Kyrene Foundation awards twelve Slater-Newman Student Scholarships, scholarships to outstanding 8th grade students who go above and beyond in the area of community service. The scholarships are named after the two Kyrene employees who started the Kyrene Family Resource Center.
