ONECommunity Scholarship

At HarborOne, we believe education fuels future success. In 2016, HarborOne pledged $1 million over 10 years to provide scholarships to deserving high school students in an effort to ease the financial burden associated with higher education. Over the last decade, HarborOne has provided more than $300,000 in college scholarships and we are truly passionate about continuing this effort to support exceptional students throughout the region.
