Savvas Learning Company Awards Scholarships to Four Students to Help Them Realize Their Dreams of Attending College


PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY — September 9, 2021 — Savvas Learning Company, a K-12 next-generation learning solutions leader, is thrilled to announce that through its newly created Savvas Scholarship Program it is awarding four students from underrepresented communities a total of $50,000 each to use toward tuition to a four-year college.

The Savvas Scholarship Program will help make attending a four-year college attainable for students who come from low-income backgrounds. In addition to the financial support, Savvas will provide the recipients mentorship and career-planning opportunities, as well as sponsor and facilitate internships inside and outside of Savvas.

“For far too many students from marginalized communities, attending a four-year college remains out of reach due solely to socio-economic factors,” said Bethlam Forsa, CEO of Savvas Learning Company. “We are pleased to support four outstanding students on their academic journey and help them achieve their dreams of earning a college degree. Each one of them possesses the ability to accomplish great things and become future leaders in whatever endeavors they pursue.”

The four recipients of the 2021 Savvas Scholarship Program include:

  • A Chicago student with a passion for both psychology and biology who plans to pursue a pre-med track at Creighton University, after which she aspires to become an orthopedic surgeon.
  • A student from Boardman, Oregon who is inspired to study environmental engineering and business at Oregon State University so she can help people and have a positive impact on the environment.
  • A Philadelphia student who plans to major in psychology at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University so she can help address mental health issues, especially among young people.
  • A student athlete from Omaha, Nebraska, who intends to study kinesiology at Midland University so he can pursue his passion for athletic coaching and training.

Savvas teamed up with College Possible, a national leader in college access and success programming, to help identify students for the inaugural class of the Savvas Scholarship Program. College Possible is dedicated to closing the “degree divide” and empowering students from diverse backgrounds to pursue and attain a higher education. Savvas scholarship recipients were selected from a pool of high school students being mentored and coached by the nonprofit organization.

“Scholarships like these can help remove the financial burden that poses one of the most substantial barriers to college choice for many youth from underrepresented communities,” said Craig Robinson, CEO of College Possible. “It’s a life-changing opportunity that cannot be understated.”
