Helping students grow and reach their goals

Achieve a Better and Brighter Future

We believe everyone deserve access to a quality education to achieve a better and brighter future. Ursuline Sisters Scholars is a ministry of Beatitude House that helps college students from low-income families achieve their academic aspirations through mentorship and financial assistance for school-related living expenses.  Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty through education and help underprivileged adults overcome everyday challenges.

Program Benefits

Ursuline Sisters Scholars provide students with several options to pursue educational goals dependent on their interests and needs.

Financial assistance is available to address a college student’s basic needs for food, clothing and transportation. This helps alleviate expenses and empower low-income individuals to overcome obstacles in their lives.

Scholarship and grants for academic-related needs are available for students enrolled in the program.

Workshops on topics such as financial/credit management, time management, acedemic/study skills, and stress management are provided.

One-on-One Mentoring

Mentors are vital to an individual’s success. Our mentors volunteer time to provide help, stability and guidance for students eager to achieve their goals and graduate from college or vocational school.

Sarah Hammet

“By the time I came back to college to pursue my degree, I was 34 years old and had three children. I am enrolled at Youngstown State University and will receive my bachelor’s degree in social work in May of 2019. Having my mentor available to discuss my uncertainties while navigating family, work, and school has been invaluable.”
