MVCAP Awards $20K In Scholarships

WARREN — The Mahoning Valley College Access Program expanded its services this school year to include the Campbell City School District and the new Northeast Ohio Impact Academy.

“In 2020, MVCAP assisted more than 1,000 students and awarded nearly $20,000 in scholarships to students attending 28 colleges and universities,” says Executive Director Gerri Jenkins.

Thanks to a gift from PNC Bank, MVCAP began a peer-to-peer program, in which students who refer other students to the staff for assistance can receive $25 per referral. In the works is a partnership with the Professional Development Center in Youngstown to create job-training opportunities.
