About the program

The Scholarship Program was initially developed to provide full financial support to the Original Freedom Writers to attend college. Today, many have moved on to pursue masters and doctoral degrees. 

The Freedom Writers are still devoted to education and civil rights. They feel obligated to pay it forward. Therefore, the Freedom Writers continue the scholarship program for first-generation high school graduates from Woodrow Wilson High School, the Freedom Writers' alma mater.
