Data on resilience

Can resilience be taught? On May 3, 2013 Bruce Rogers of Forbes posted The Power of Resilience: Study Shows How Horatio Alger Association Scholarships Make A Difference about a 2012 study by NORC’s Gregory C. Wolniak and Zachary Gebhardt at the University of Chicago. The authors found that low-income students, many of whose parents were drug addicts or imprisoned, were more successful at overcoming adversity, completing college and finding full-time employment when they received both large scholarships and mentoring. Money alone is not enough.
