New Scholarship Opportunity for Ready4Work Graduates

Operation New Hope is excited to announce a new scholarship opportunity for Ready4Work graduates. With generous support from Bono’s Pit Bar-B-Q and in partnership with the University of North Florida (UNF), the Bono’s Hope Scholarship is now available to qualifying Ready4Work Graduates wishing to obtain higher education.

Josh Martino, President of Bono’s Pit Bar-B-Q, Board Member of Operation New Hope, and member of the UNF Student Affairs Community Council, generously committed $10,000 over the next 4 years to help Ready4Work graduates obtain a college degree at the University of North Florida.

“I believe we are all better than our worst mistake, worst day, or worst decision,” said Martino. “I believe in second, third, and forth chances. I believe in the underdog and the comeback story. If I can play even a small role in affecting that change, that chance, that hope, then I will be the grateful one for the opportunity to help.”   The Bono’s Hope Scholarship is open to anyone who has ever graduated from Operation New Hope’s Ready4Work program. Additional information, eligibility requirements, and application details are available at
