Creative Corrections Education Foundation (CCEF) is pleased to announce 23 scholarships have been awarded to children with an incarcerated or paroled parent.  This achievement is a milestone for which we are very proud since the Foundation has been operating for less than a year!  We are confident our 2013 goal of at least 40 scholarships will be met.

The CCEF scholars come from 14 different States and are or will be attending 22 post-secondary educational institutions located across the United States.  We are appreciative of the incarcerated parents who informed their children of the scholarship opportunities and all those who wrote letters of recommendation for the scholars.  We must also recognize the contributors who have supported the scholarships.

Based on the excellent response we have had thus far we see the demand for scholarships will continue to increase, and this places a greater responsibility on CCEF to generate additional funding to meet the need.  We are optimistic the inmate population will be an important donor to the scholarship program.

We wish our scholarship recipients success with their education goals, and we congratulate them on being selected for the CCEF scholarship!
