Per Scholas Awarded Inaugural Grant from Apollo Opportunity Foundation

Per Scholas is thrilled to share that we are a recipient of an inaugural grant from Apollo Global Management, Inc.‘s Apollo Opportunity Foundation as they work to advance their mission of expanding opportunity and supporting economic inclusion for underrepresented individuals. The grant will support the expansion of Per Scholas’ rigorous technical training and access to employer networks to close the tech skills divide, unlocking potential for 4,500 new learners and 2,500 alumni across more than 20 cities in 2023.

The grant will go beyond a financial contribution from the Apollo Opportunity Foundation. Over the next year Apollo employees will also support Per Scholas through ongoing engagement including volunteering, strategic advisory work, and providing broader exposure to the Apollo platform. 

“We are grateful for this grant from the Apollo Opportunity Foundation and the support Per Scholas will receive in addition to their generous philanthropic support,” said Per Scholas Chief Development Officer Caitlyn Brazill. “With Apollo’s engagement and investment in our mission, Per Scholas will continue unlocking potential in our learners for careers in technology through our tuition-free tech training coast to coast.”
