The cost to sponsor a Scholar through the entire program is $15,000. This includes all workshops, individual meetings, college application and essay assistance, college transition preparation, college mentoring, financial aid and scholarship assistance, financial literacy guidance, and career development training. We are grateful for any investment you can make.

“This type of investment transcends generations. My grandma does not know how to read or write, my parents went up to 5th grade in Mexico, and now I’m a college graduate who is pursuing graduate school. My degree is not only mine, it is my family’s too.”

— Estefania Contreras, UC Berkeley’18
