The Albany Public Schools Foundation addresses the issues of poverty and equitable opportunity in our schools through the Student Assistance Program. We believe that students who face issues such as homelessness, financial disadvantage, lack of parental support, and other seemingly insurmountable obstacles, deserve an equal chance for success. The Student Assistance Program seeks to remove some of the barriers to learning by providing the following:

Mentor - $500

Transitions the student from high school to college/trade school

Year 1

Student Grant - $1,500

Provides items such as dorm room essentials, school, supplies, laptop, etc.

Year 1

Scholarship - $2,000
