We Are Scholar Strong

Amplify GR partnered with our neighborhood schools to introduce Scholar Strong – a mini-grant program designed to encourage teachers and staff to develop innovative and experiential instructional projects that motivate and challenge students to learn and achieve.

Scholar Strong provides funding for projects and initiatives that revolve around:

  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math)
  • Literacy
  • College and career readiness
  • Leadership development
  • Early Childhood Education

Scholar Strong Quote

Our youth are vital to the future of our city, and with adequate opportunity and investment, they demonstrate strong potential and can contribute to their own communities.

Investing in Student Success

Our children are the future and we recognize the importance of investing in them and their futures. Scholar Strong not only includes resources for classrooms at neighborhood schools, but also focuses on local efforts to increase access to early childhood education and out of school learning opportunities.
