Each year we award six incentive scholarships to exemplary student leaders in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.  We provide enrichment activities and, as our students grow, the Partnership offers mentoring and college application advice.  In our 14-year history, we have awarded 84 scholarships; all of the scholarship recipients who have reached college age are attending college. Read about the 2019 award ceremony.

We are also proud to support the Harvard-Kent School in other ways, as well, by helping to fund the music program, a reading intervention initiative, and a teacher grant program to support innovative classroom programs.





“The Leadership Scholarship program is a perfect example of how a community and a school should work together in partnership. If we had more of these kind of partnerships, we’d have a lot fewer needs in the city.”

Boston Mayor Martin Walsh
