In 2019, we selected ten Scholars for our pilot program, and it was a remarkable success. So far, our Scholars have earned a combined $2 million dollars in merit-aid scholarships to four-year colleges throughout the country, including: USC, Notre Dame, LMU, Cal Poly SLO, and UC Berkeley.

The cost to sponsor a Scholar through the entire program is $7,500. This includes all workshops, college visits, individual meetings, college application and essay assistance, college transition preparation, and financial aid and scholarship assistance. We are grateful for any investment you can make.

“This type of investment transcends generations. My grandma does not know how to reador 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.”
