Dual School, the project-based learning program based at 1313 Innovation and William Penn High School, made two big announcements at its spring exhibition on May 21.

First, the program is now officially a 501c3 nonprofit — which means any donation you make to Dual School is now tax-deductible.

Second, students from underrepresented backgrounds who continue social impact projects after completing the program are eligible to receive an “Outstanding Alumni Award,” including a $1,000 scholarship, funded by Blue Dot Education.

Three alumni received the award at the spring exhibition:

  • Siawaa Antwi of Friere Charter School, advocate for financial literacy and cofounder of Ikigai, a venture focused on serving people who are homeless with dignity
  • Valentina Maza and Tatiana Romero of William Penn, founders of ETI (Education in Times of Immigration), a venture that works to close the opportunity gap for students who immigrate to the U.S. from Spanish-speaking countries as teens
