Prison Scholar Fund Seeks Support

A fund that organizes scholarships to allow prisoners to take college courses is desperately seeking support. The Prison Scholar Fund is asking for financial support, from both prisoners as well as family members, friends, and supporters on the outside:

“Every dollar counts. Living on a ramen noodle budget you might know this better than most. So don’t let how ‘little’ you can give stop you from giving. There are 2.3 million people incarcerated in this country. If everyone of you gives a single dollar, that pays for about 4600 classes.”

Please spread word about this program through the inside if you can. More information can be found at or by contacting them at:
