The Step Ahead Scholarship program is dedicated to recognizing and providing financial support for promising young women from the greater Memphis community who are committed to public service in the areas of academic success and effective, responsible life planning. The program awards multiple scholarships to young women who plan to pursue a career in public health or social services and promote a wider understanding and use of the most effective contraceptives to assist Memphians in planning their lives and achieving their educational and career goals.
Multiple scholarships of at least $2,000 are awarded from a $200,000 fund. Awards are based on strength of application and estimated financial need. Each award is a one-time, annual scholarship—but recipients are encouraged to maintain good academic status and reapply each year as needed. Since its inception in 2014, $500,000 has been awarded to outstanding young women in the Memphis Community.
“Being able to attend and complete college is so important to the women in our community. We want to empower all women to achieve their hopes and dreams.”
- Claudia Haltom, Founder and CEO of A Step Ahead Foundation
