Meet The Scholars
Get to know the student behind the scholarship. Learn about their story and follow them on their journey through college and beyond.
Up to $3,000/year in scholarship funds and in-depth check-ins, which occur a minimum of twice a year and as often as every week, depending on each student’s individual needs.
Each student accepted into the program is matched with a mentor who works collaboratively with staff to help the Scholar solve problems and learn new strategies for success, empowering the student to remove barriers on their own.
We place Achievers in a variety of career-specific summer internships (e.g. the City and County of San Francisco’s Project Pull) to develop on-the-job skills and experience and prepare students for life after college.
Through amazing partnerships with companies and community based organizations such as LinkedIn and College Track, we are able to offer college ready workshops with an emphasis on their social media presence.
