Funderburg Scholars

Graduation picture of former RYP studentFunderburg Scholars makes college possible for the high school graduates of Roxbury Youth Programs by providing college-going students with a laptop, textbooks and limited tuition help.

Founded and directed by volunteer Loretta Ho Sherblom, Funderburg Scholars reached a turning point in 2016. With the support of the UU Urbab Ministry, Funderburg Scholars spun off to become its own legal nonprofit. The program will continue to work closely with RYP to support college-bound students.
