Our Mission

To identify, encourage and support outstanding, low-income New York City high school graduates, entering their lives before they begin college and staying with them until they graduate and beyond.

Our Impact

100%

of our scholars graduate college — compared to the national average of low-income students: 16%

91%

of our scholars are first in their families to pursue a college degree, changing the trajectories of their families for generations forward.

55%

of our current undergraduates are majoring in STEM fields.

Our Programs

In the belief that financial aid alone is not enough to assure safe passage through college, even for the most successful students, the program provides more than money. Our "Plus" includes paid internships the summer after high school and, from that time on, academic counseling, summer job support, internships and career advice, mentoring and personal guidance.
