Bridge to the Future Scholarship Applications

Tanager Place is pleased to announce applications are now being accepted for the Bridge to the Future scholarship program.

Thanks to a generous $1M anonymous gift to Tanager Place in 2019, the organization is able to offer scholarships to assist those who have benefited from Tanager Place programs and services with meeting their secondary educational goals.

“We are excited to open this year’s scholarship program up. It is an incredible privilege to be able to help kids who have benefited from Tanager Place services pursue their future education goals. One of the highlights of last year was signing the notification letters for our winners knowing how much it would impact them. This was especially important in 2020, as hope was so needed. We are beyond grateful that in 2019, an anonymous donor stepped forward with such generous gift that will benefit Tanager Place alumni for years to come.  The program itself is designed to be accommodating to whatever the secondary education pursuit might be; enrolling in collegiate courses, attending a trade school or furthering academic goals in a community college,” commented, Okpara Rice, CEO.

Criteria and applications are available online at  The deadline to receive completed applications is May 14, 2021.  A selection committee will announce the award recipients in late May.  This year over $56,000 will be awarded to children who have benefited from Tanager Place services.
