Savvas Learning Company Announces 2022 Recipients of the Savvas Scholarship

Annual program awards scholarships to four students to help them realize their dreams of attending college

PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY — October 6, 2022Savvas Learning Company, a K-12 next-generation learning solutions leader, is pleased to announce that through its second-annual Savvas Scholarship Program it is awarding four students from low-income backgrounds and underrepresented communities a total of $50,000 each to use toward tuition to a four-year college.

“Attending a four-year college is often only a dream for many well-deserving, hard-working students from low-income families,” said Bethlam Forsa, CEO of Savvas Learning Company. “Savvas is honored to once again provide four outstanding students the financial support to help them turn their dream of earning a college degree into reality. As their academic journeys continue, we look forward to seeing them develop and become leaders, creators, and role models who use their voices for the betterment of those around them.”

In addition to financial support, the Savvas Scholarship Program will provide the recipients mentorship and career-planning opportunities, as well as sponsor and facilitate internships inside and outside of Savvas.

The four recipients of the 2022 Savvas Scholarship Program include:

  • A Chicago student with a passion for acting, writing, and filmmaking who plans to pursue performance as a major at Emerson College in Boston.
  • A student from St. Paul, Minnesota who is inspired to study graphic design at Augsburg University in Minneapolis so she can apply her passion for digital illustration to advocate for people.
  • A Chicago student who plans to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, where he will pursue his dream of becoming an actor, choreographer, and all-around performer.
  • A student from Seattle who, inspired to understand how people interact, intends to study mass communications with a focus on business administration and marketing at Clark Atlanta University in Georgia.

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

“Scholarships can empower students by removing one of the most common barriers to getting into college and completing their degree: financing,” said Al Fan, interim CEO of College Possible. “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Savvas to provide these life-changing opportunities to students.”
