A higher education can unlock a whole new world of opportunities and be a stepping stone to a great new career.

Fresh Start offers unique scholarship opportunities to our most active clients in the Thrive level, with assistance for those looking to complete a certificate, associates or bachelors degree at a not for profit institution or vocational school.  

Note: Fresh Start no longer provides funding for Master's degrees.

E. Jean Goulet Scholarship

The E. Jean Goulet Scholarship assists Fresh Start clients who have demonstrated financial need to fund educational and career pursuits. The scholarship award can be used for degrees and approved vocational programs, job training costs and certification, and many other job-related programs. However, educational scholarship funds may only be used to cover the cost of tuition and/or program expenses. Interested clients must attend an information session.

For eligibility requirements, and application and information session questions, contact Erika Parra at
