We identify, encourage, and support outstanding, low-income, and often first-generation New York City high school graduates with a scholarship, individualized advising, and career readiness throughout college to help them graduate debt-free and on time.
"The Plus in Scholarship Plus is about mentorship, learning, and building a family, and it's what makes this scholarship so special." Zeshan, Yale University
Since 2010, Scholarship Plus has provided financial assistance and support to 77 students. 100% of our students have graduated college.
These students confront daunting hurdles: paying for the tremendous cost of college without taking on substantial loans, and navigating life on campuses that lack diversity both racially and socioeconomically.
