Alpha is grateful to have received a $10,000 grant from the Heinz Endowments, a Pittsburgh-based philanthropic organization. The Heinz Endowments supports efforts to make Southwestern Pennsylvania a premier place to live and work, a center for learning and educational excellence, and a region that embraces diversity and inclusion. The grant money was awarded in installments from 2014 through 2016, funding scholarships for admitted students for whom workshop tuition presents a financial hardship.

Additionally, the staff and students of the Alpha workshop would like to thank the following individuals for their generous assistance with our scholarship fund:
