Sponsored by the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown, the goal of the Ursuline Sisters Scholars program is to break the cycle of poverty by helping students manage the academic and financial aspects of completing post-secondary education so they can graduate ready for employment.

The program supports students in 3 important ways:
1. Mentorship: Students address goals monthly with paired mentors, receive referrals to community resources, and have access to case management, crisis planning, and peer support.
2. Workshops: Students participate in online or group sessions that address financial literacy, time management, study skills, and stress management.
3. Financial Assistance: Students may receive monthly food/gas gift cards, school supplies, scholarships, and emergency financial assistance.
