“We are proud to offer this scholarship to individuals who have committed to ongoing education or training after prison and are being an example of leadership and contribution in their communities,” said Stuart Papavassiliou, chairman of the board of directors of End Violence Project. “This is the heart of our work and what our founder, Mahin Bina, stood for.

About End Violence Project
End Violence Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing leadership programs to inmates and ex-offenders, helping them transition successfully back into life with their families and communities.
In addition to the programs offered inside of prisons, the End Violence Project also works with the residents of community correction centers. In these centers we continue our support of ex-offenders who are committed to staying free and who strive to be leaders in their own communities. We provide opportunities for them to experience leadership by helping other ex-offenders become leaders as well. The program also provides much needed practical assistance such as help in obtaining proper identification, transportation passes and clothing, and finding legal employment.
