|About||Discovering Promise - Rewarding Excellence. http://carsonscholars.org/|
The goal of the Carson Scholars Fund is to address the problem of academic underachievement by motivating young people to strive for academic excellence and to use their intellectual and leadership skills to contribute to society.
The objective of the Ben Carson Reading Project is to enhance existing curricula/practices and to give a school an opportunity to create an environment to engage children in independent reading and to help them develop a love for reading at an early age.
The Carson Scholars Fund offers scholar awards to students as early as the fourth grade. Awards are based on academic achievement and humanitarianism, regardless of financial need. Carson Scholars are honored at an annual awards banquet, where they receive personalized medals, certificates, peer recognition, and a large trophy for their school, which lists names of the award winners.
In addition to providing scholarships, the Carson Scholars Fund has established over 155 Reading Rooms in 20 states and Washington, D.C. The Reading Rooms provide a safe haven for students to discover the joy of independent reading.
