Spread the word about the Octavius Catto Scholarship

With the effects of COVID-19 hitting families especially hard, the Catto Scholarship provides a way forward—ensuring that more college students earn a degree so they can enter or advance in the workforce and have fulfilling careers.

The Catto Scholarship uses a “last-dollar” funding model that covers students’ outstanding tuition balance after they have received federal, state, and other financial aid.

This will make Community College of Philadelphia tuition-free for eligible first-time, full-time students!

As a result, students will be able to worry less on the cost of education and focus more on achieving their dreams.

The first cohort of Catto Scholars will start their education this January. Please spread the word within your communities about this incredible opportunity. It’s not too late to sign up to be a #CattoScholar.
