Our Mission

The Dr. Ione Dunkley Edwards Scholarship Program was created to support college preparation for young women of color attending independent Catholic Schools in Metropolitan New York.

Scholarship recipients are students whose PSAT scores and academic performance suggest they would benefit from exposure to materials and techniques designed to improve test taking ability, and, therefore, test scores.

Scholarship recipients are awarded an amount to cover the cost of a selected college entrance examination course fee.  In addition, scholarship recipients also participate in a college entrance exam preparatory course offered by scholarship partner,  (Caserta).
