It's all about the scholars...
Any student encountering unexpected hardship (such as parental unemployment or a family member diagnosed with severe illness) must not only deal with this adversity but also continue advancing their own life and achievements. It's an unenviable position for any person, but unfortunately, low-income students face the burden of navigating additional complexities due to financial constraints. High-performing, low-income students who encounter unexpected financial hardship risk disrupting their academic progress and obscuring their pathway to financial security.
Since being founded in the Winter of 2010, we have awarded grants to students across the country.
Raising over $80,000 from our generous supporters to alleviate some of the financial stress college students experience. Our scholars are high-performing in the classroom, leaders on-and off- campus, and exceedingly motivated.
