Expanded Director’s Discretionary Fund

The Director’s Discretionary Fund allows the director to develop special projects to enhance student learning and to serve unanticipated needs on a case-by-case basis. For example, the fund was recently used to support diagnostic testing for a scholarship student who showed remarkable talents in one area but persistent challenges in another. Even something as simple as providing a meal plan can greatly improve a student’s chances for success. The Discretionary Fund allows the director to step in on a case-by-case basis to help alleviate students’ and families’ greatest needs.
