Personal development school has launched a $1 million scholarship fund for students who want to develop their own personal development skills.
The scholarship, which will be made available to students who have completed their degree at a public or private preschool, is being supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institutes.
The Howard Hughes School of Medicine and Howard Hughes Children’s Hospital will be the fund’s primary sponsors.
The $1.5 million will go to students from the Howard, Charles and Clara Harris School of Education and the Howard Harris Foundation.
The scholarships are funded by the School of Development and Human Development, which was created in the mid-1980s by former U.S. Secretary of Education Richard Viguerie to fund high-quality private and community preschools.
The scholarships will be open to students at the Howard and Charles Harris School, and will be distributed through the Howard Howard Harris Children’s Foundation.
“We’re really excited to help children with the process of developing their own skills,” said Julie Dannenberg, vice president of strategic partnerships at the Child Development Institute.
“This is a great opportunity to help students develop their self-esteem and confidence in the process.”
The Howard Hughes Family Foundation also has a program to help low-income children in the United States and Canada learn to use the internet and computers.
The Fund for Excellence in Child Development is a grant-making initiative of the Howard-Harris Foundation.
