In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the digital divide was something that many students faced with the challenge of at-home learning. Formerly known as the Boosts Resilience Fund, the Microgrant program was established to provide students the small 'boost' they need to unlock their full potential.
Today, Close the Gap Foundation is announcing our 2020 inaugural Boosts COVID-19 Resiliency Scholars.
When we first launched our COVID-19 Boosts Resiliency Fund back in March 2020, we did not expect the demand and outpouring support we received from low-income students all over the country.
Today, Close the Gap is launching our Boosts Resilience Fund to support low-income students during COVID-19.
