MIT Impact Scholarship
During the MIT2016 celebration commemorating 100 years in Cambridge, the Institute announced a scholarship program for college-bound Cambridge seniors attending Cambridge Rindge & Latin School (CRLS), Prospect Hill Academy (PHA), and the Community Charter School of Cambridge (CCSC). Created to recognize and inspire the power of personal impact of Cambridge youth, the MIT Impact Scholarship also serves to reinforce MIT’s belief that every individual has the ability to make valuable personal contributions that make the world a better place. Now in its third year, Impact Scholarships have been awarded to thirty phenomenal students from a range of backgrounds.
The application process is managed by each of the Cambridge high schools, Cambridge Rindge and Latin, Community Charter School of Cambridge, and Prospect Hill Academy. For more information, reach out to ogcrmit [dot] edu or your guidance counselor.
