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 degree at a four-year institution or achieve certification at a vocational school.  

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 Shay Masterson at

University of Phoenix Scholarship

The Fresh Start/University of Phoenix Scholarship is currently closed.  It is our hope to be able to offer this opportunity again in the fall. 

In the past, Fresh Start women applied for a select number of full-tuition University of Phoenix scholarships for an undergraduate or master’s degree. Applicants must be current clients of Fresh Start of at least 6 months, or at the Thrive level, and in good standing. Applicants may not be currently enrolled nor in the process of enrolling at any University of Phoenix program prior to the scholarship award date; applicants also may not be an employee or family member of an employee at the Apollo Education Group, Inc.
