San Antonio Education Partnership
Concerned about high dropout rates, the COPS and Metro Alliance in San Antonio worked with businesses, school districts, the city and area universities to provide scholarships to high school students who graduate with a B average and 95% attendance record. The Education Partnership was designed to agitate the imagination of high school students, provide them with an incentive to stay in school, and guarantee financial assistance to attend college. Since 1989, over $14 million has been invested in more than 2,900 area students who have earned college degrees.
