Make A Difference

The Make A Difference Scholarship Program will provide civic education opportunities to students and teachers from the poorest communities in America. The program will include a Close Up Washington experience in Washington, DC, classroom resources, and curriculum support to help students and teachers implement community action projects. This program is being conducted in partnership with the World Bank Group.
