New Scholarship Program for Merry Tutors

The Merry Tutor, a student-run nonprofit tutoring organization, has established a scholarship fund that will provide $500 to at least two graduating senior tutors beginning spring 2017. These tutors volunteer their valuable time to provide free tutoring to K-12 students. The scholarship is meant to reward them for their hard work and dedication. The goal is to make this an annual scholarship for The Merry Tutor, so we’re always looking for sponsors. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor, a tutor, or a tutee can email themerrytutor@gmail.com or visit www.themerrytutor.org.
