Each year, for 21 years, Minority Enterprise & Educational Development, Inc. (MEED) awarded Helping Other People Emerge (HOPE) Scholarships to middle school students who had achieved academic excellence or shown significant improvement in their studies. The HOPE Scholarship was unique because while the student matures and succeeds, so did the scholarship. The HOPE Scholarship, a $500 scholarship, was deposited into a trust account where it drew interest until the student’s high school graduation. The student can apply the matured trust to their college of choice.
MEED has awarded over $750,000 in HOPE Scholarships since its inception.
Designated Colorado 501(c)3 organization
The MEED Board of Directors would like to offer its deep appreciation
