Christina Renga

The University of Vermont Urban Partnerships Program
Founded in 2000, the Urban Partnerships Program at UVM takes a comprehensive, pro-active approach towards students in inner city high schools beginning as early the ninth grade. Teachers and advisers from the UVM campus are sent to meet with students, teachers, principals and parents and sponsored visits for students and parents to the UVM campus are arranged to reinforce the high school planning visits and link students with admissions and other university resources. The program is designed to build a relationship with talented students in inner city high schools and to provide knowledge and guidance about the world of higher education that students in more affluent schools tend to take for granted.

MCS Foundation Scholarship Camp Dudley

Camp Dudley Scholarship Fund
For 125 years, Dudley has remained true to its original mission: to develop boys’ moral, personal and physical skills in the spirit of fellowship and fun. One of the reasons Camp Dudley has continued to thrive since 1885, providing magical summer experiences for thousands of young people, is because of the timelessness of its motto—“The Other Fellow First”—a motto that resonates through every stages of a man’s life. The William J. Schmidt Annual Scholarship Fund’s goal is to raise money to enable boys and young men to attend Dudley who would not otherwise have the opportunity.
