  • CSJ receives $10,000 from Davis Foundation

    first_imgThe College of St. Joseph in Rutland has received a grant from the Hilda & Preston Davis Foundation for its pioneer STEPS (Students Taking an Effective Path to Success) program. The foundation, based in Greenwich, CT, gave the college $10,000 to further its work in the STEPS program. This is the second $10,000 grant the college has received from the Hilda & Preston Davis Foundation, which provides charitable funding to organizations that aid in the development of the lives of children and young adults. In particular, the Foundation recognizes organizations that focus on providing education for the underprivileged.STEPS is a unique program designed specifically to meet the needs of Vermont youth transitioning from state custody to college. Fall 2010 marks the third year of the College’s pilot program. STEPS is the first program of its kind in the state of Vermont.The faculty, staff, and trustees at College of St. Joseph are committed to the STEPS project on every level. College President, Dr. Frank Miglorie, who developed plans for the program, said that the College faculty and administration ‘saw a clear connection between helping Vermont youth in foster care transition to higher education and the College’s mission.’ Miglorie acknowledged that without CSJ’s help through the STEPS program, ‘these young people might otherwise have little hope of pursuing a college education or developing a worthwhile career path. The STEPS program can truly make a difference in their lives.’Source: College of St. Josephlast_img read more
