Scholarship winners will be announced this spring and will also be featured at our Annual Dinner.

More on the scholarship: Washington Policy Center Young Professionals would like to acknowledge the hard working students at Summit Sierra with two $2500 Scholarships to graduating seniors.

We believe access to quality education is key to empowering students and providing equal opportunity.
