Crankstart Re-entry Scholarship

The Crankstart Re-entry Scholarship Program was established in 2019 by the Crankstart Foundation to provide scholarship support to undergraduate students who have experienced a cumulative gap in their education of five or more years, are pursuing their first baccalaureate degree, anticipate workforce participation for a significant period of time post-graduation, and qualify on the basis of academic merit and financial need. Preference will be given to newly matriculating students. Recipients should also demonstrate achievements and promise in the face of challenges and/or hardships as well as a commitment to obtaining their degree.
