The Foundation for Blended and Online Learning has announced that thirty-one graduates of online and blended high school programs have received post-secondary financial support through their 2016 Student Scholarship Program. Scholarship recipients represent more than twenty-one states around the country, attended a mix of traditional public, public charter, and private schools, and have plans to matriculate to a wide range of 2-year, 4-year, and vocational schools to continue their personalized educational journeys.

Having taken the road less traveled through online and blended learning opportunities, these young scholars are poised to tackle the next phase of their schooling with focus and determination.”

Kevin P. Chavous, Chairman of the foundation’s Board of Directors, said, “Each day I am amazed by the heights to which our students can soar when simply offered a chance to do so. In online and blended learning environments, students across the country are taking ownership of their learning and exploring new ways to display and apply their knowledge.
