The scholarship recipients will also be eligible for internships and service learning trips through Beyond the Boroughs.

“I know the value of creating strong partnerships with organizations that are experts in their field. I am so proud of the scholars I have been able to assist in the past and look forward to making this process even more efficient and sustainable by partnering with Beyond the Boroughs,” Serena said.
“We are honored to work with The Serena Williams Fund through our named scholarship partnership program and contribute our experience in selecting deserving scholarship recipients.
