From WSOC TV:
Students living in public housing in Charlotte have an opportunity to get help paying for college.
Charlotte ranks among the worst in the nation in upward mobility, meaning if a child is born in poverty it is very difficult for them to climb out of it.
The Greater Steps Scholars program is designed to help end the cycle of poverty by investing in students in public housing.
For more than 30 years it’s been called the Charlotte Housing Authority Scholarship Fund. But the name recently changed to Greater Steps Scholars, partly to battle any stigma and attract more students and donors. In addition to scholarships, recipients receive access to educational and professional development workshops and mentors.
