Westchester Scholars Program Brings Technology to Deserving Students

In an increasingly technology-driven world, access to personal computers has become indispensable to a student’s educational success. These resources, however, often fall beyond the financial reach of many Westchester County families.

The Westchester Scholars Program, offered by the Westchester County government in partnership with the Generoso Pope Foundation, provides qualified middle and high school students who show academic promise with computers, printers, software, and access to academic enrichment programs.

Since the program’s inception in 2000, the Pope Foundation has contributed nearly half a million dollars to the Westchester Scholars Program, allowing over 400 deserving students to receive computer equipment and mentoring, narrowing the “digital divide” between children of different economic backgrounds.
