Climb The Ladder of SUCCESS!!!
The Beulah A.G. Smith (BAGS) Scholarship
Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1991 by friends
and family of Beulah Smith to ensure perpetual support for the
vision, dreams, love, and commitment she had to the education of
young children in the Chicago Public Schools. Mrs. Smith
dedicated her life to educating children. She received her
Bachelor's degree from Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, and
a Master's degree in Special Education from Chicago State
University. Mrs. Smith spent more than 19 years in the Chicago
Public School system trying to provide a quality education for all
students, and especially for students with disabilities.
The Beulah A.G. Smith Scholarship
Foundation was established to provide equipment and supplies to
students in elementary and high schools, as well as for students who
want to engage in higher education. A major thrust of the
foundation is known as the "Stairway to Higher Education
Mentor Program" which teams competent, caring adults
with aspiring young people. These adults provide a one-on-one
personal touch that is often missing in the lives of children who
come from economically depressed urban areas.
Each year, the BAGS Foundation provides
scholarships to elementary and high school students. In our
effort to help as many deserving students as possible, we are
constantly looking for ways to increase our funding. If you
have a way to help us, please drop us a line. We need you to
help us, so that we can help them.
