We believe that access to higher education has the power to change lives.
A college degree harnesses the power to change someone's life forever - yet only 11% of first-generation college students from underserved backgrounds graduate from college within 6 years. We aim to change this narrative by connecting our students with the community, resources, and tools to make their college dreams, and beyond, possible.
ScholarMatch's seven-year program supports underserved students starting their junior year of high school, all the way to college graduation, and into a meaningful career. Our programs are centered on targeted college scholarships, individualized college counseling, and robust career services.
In the 2018-2019 academic year alone, ScholarMatch has served over 2,600 high school and college students reach their college dreams. And, as a result of our programs, ScholarMatch students graduate college at seven times the rate of their peers from similar backgrounds.
With your support on Giving Tuesday, we can continue to make college dreams possible!
