Providence Cristo Rey Senior Named Dell Scholar

A Providence Cristo Rey High School senior, Taylor Scott, has been announced as a Dell Scholar. The Dell Scholars program targets first-generation, highly motivated students who demonstrate the drive to succeed despite personal obstacles. Scholars demonstrate a unique "GPA" of grit, potential, and ambition in their quest for a college education.

Dell Scholars receive a $20,000 scholarship, a Dell laptop, book stipend, and ongoing support for the financial, emotional, and life challenges that may prevent them from completing college. Dell Scholars are 25 percent more likely to earn their bachelor’s degrees within four to six years of high school graduation compared to students of similar socioeconomic backgrounds.

We sat down with Taylor to learn more about her future plans.

Congratulations, Taylor! We are so proud of you for becoming a Dell Scholar! Where do you plan to attend college next year?<
