Due to urgent needs for emergency grants in connection with COVID-19, The Pruno Fund will not be accepting applications for Education Grants until further notice.

  • Are you applying for community college?
  • Are you learning computer coding at an accredited training program?
  • Have you been studying to get your real estate agent’s license?
  • Do you yearn to learn to cook?

Each of these programs and many more may qualify for an Education Grant of up to $5,000 on a one-time basis, including up to $1,000 for a laptop computer. Individuals can request a one-time Education Grant to pay for tuition and books for an academic or job-skills training program, and the Exoneree may need to find a job. The Exoneree may need to further their education or acquire new skills necessary to qualify for certain jobs.

To apply for an Education Grant, complete the online application and submit it with the invoice you received from school or program and your supporting documents. Once you have completed your application and provided the invoice and your supporting documents, we will review your application and let you know within 30 days whether you have been awarded a grant. Once you have been awarded an Education Grant, even if you ask for less than the $5,000 limit, you will not be eligible to apply for another Education Grant. All grants for tuition will be paid directly to the program or school you will be attending. Grants for other school-related books and supplies, including a laptop computer, will be paid directly to the grantee.
