    Rural Connections

    by Nicole Fruge posted August 3, 2012


    A new scholarship program launched this summer by the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth gives bright, low-income rural students the chance to take part in a challenging summer program at sites across the country. Rural Connections will give full scholarships during the next three years to more than 120 rural 7th, 8th, and 9th graders to attend three-week residential summer programs at one of 24 sites. Photographer Melanie Burford spent a day documenting students and teachers during the program at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa., last month.
