The Elevation Scholars Program

The Elevation Scholars Program transforms distressed communities through education. The program’s goal is to increase college access for high-achieving students from modest backgrounds and ensure successful completion of a college degree from the nation’s most selective college and universities.

Working Together To Make Dreams A Reality

The Elevation Scholars Program is fortunate to work with an amazing group of students. Despite facing challenges that others can only imagine, they excel in character and in academics. We develop personal relationships with our students exposing them to new career possibilities, guiding them through the demanding college admissions process, helping them fully fund college expenses, and providing support during their college studies.

Longer term, we believe our students have great power to change their communities for the better – helping reverse the cycle of neighborhood poverty. Bottom line, we encourage our students to DREAM BIG. Then we work together to make those dreams a reality.
