Julia M. Kondratowicz Scholarship Fund
"An investment in education always pays the highest returns." —Benjamin Franklin
Julia M. Kondratowicz came to Elmcrest in 1996 as a social worker at our group home located in Skeele Valley. During her 17-year tenure with the agency, she exhibited uncommon skill, an extraordinary capacity for work, and a devotion to children that set a standard to which we all should aspire. In January of 2013, Julia left Elmcrest to more fully attend to her second battle with a cancer that eventually claimed her life. She left Elmcrest and all who knew her so much better than when she arrived.
The Julia M. Kondratowicz Scholarship Fund is awarded to high school graduates who have participated in one of Elmcrest’s programs or attended its on-campus school, and who wish to further their education at a two-year, four-year, or vocational institution of higher learning. A student who meets and sustains the requirements of the program may receive an award of up to $5,000 annually for up to four years.
Your contribution to the Julia M. Kondratowicz Scholarship Fund will ensure that our youth in care will be able to continue their journey toward a fulfilling life.
