Scholarship Plus provides a substantial four-year scholarship for each student PLUS a number of ongoing support strategies, including carefully matched mentorships, paid summer internships, advising, and more. We are one of the only programs in New York City to provide both—a combination that has helped 100% of our scholars graduate college.
WAYS TO SUPPORT:
1. Unrestricted Donations of ANY AMOUNT
Donations of any amount are appreciated and will be used to run the program and provide the much-needed PLUS to scholars.
2. Restricted Scholarship Donations
$1,000 - $5,000 (annually for 4 years): Join a "Pod" (giving circle) in which up to 10 individuals support a single student through college. Pod members commit to an annual donation ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 annually for four years. We form pods from individual givers, however you may also bring in family or friends to create your own pod. As one pod leader shared, “The pods offer a rare opportunity to collaborate closely with friends in an enterprise that is uniquely hopeful.” Your pod leader will also communicate and liaise with the members and your sponsored student, and arrange optional events so that you have the opportunity to get to know the scholar better. Joining a pod is one of the very most tangible ways to feel your impact on a scholar’s future.
$10,000 (annually for 4 years): Provide a full scholarship for a student. This generous donation will cover a substantial annual college scholarship to support a scholar through their studies to graduation day. In addition to their scholarship, it includes all the extras of our PLUS: ongoing support strategies, including carefully matched mentorships, paid summer internships, advising, and more. This is a very individualized opportunity to support an underserved college student, and is one of the most fulfilling ways to impact this great need.
