Youngstown Early College aims to build on its successes with $36K in new grants



Published: Sat, January 12, 2013 @ 8:05 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown Early College, the only city school designated by the state as excellent, has received two grants to help continue its success.

The school was awarded a $23,500 grant from JP Morgan Chase and a $12,500 grant from the Youngstown Foundation.

“This is the second year we’ve received a grant from The Youngstown Foundation and the first year for the JPMorgan Chase grant,” said Principal Michele Dotson. “These funds are essential to our program, and we thank both organizations for their support and belief in the Youngstown Early College program.”

The Chase grant will be used to pay tuition for low-income students. The district covers tuition cost for its students at YEC who take courses at Youngstown State University.

The grant will help supplement that, Dotson said.

Ninth- and 10th-graders spend the school day in Fedor Hall at Youngstown State University,

taking the bulk of their high-school classes during 90-minute blocks.
