2020 Scholarship Drive for Incarcerated Sex Workers

SWOP Behind Bars offers scholarships for incarceratrd sex worjers to study a broad range of subjects via correspondence courses, including paralegal and accounting. We work in partnership with Blackstone Career Institute and with Adams State University to provide these opportunities. Research shows that serving productive time by increasing education reduces recidivism On December 17, 2016 we awarded 3 scholarships to incarcerated sex workers; in December of 2018, we gave away another 15 scholarships; and in December of 2019, 20 scholarships for paralegal or accountant training were given. One of our newest recipients plans to use his paralegal education to help other inmates file motions and research case law.

Each program costs approximately $900 and includes all study materials, books and testing. You can donate to help us cover these costs; your donation for these scholarships is tax deductible.
