Our Scholars Program provides scholarships and support services all the way to college graduation.
Students in ScholarMatch’s Destination College programs are invited to apply to our Scholars Program – a support program through college graduation that includes advising, career mentoring, and financial support from one of our scholarship partners.
To be eligible, students must complete the “Prepare” and “Apply” ScholarMatch College Ready Milestones and have an EFC under $20,000 and be first generation college students. Preference is given to students who are Pell Eligible.
Applications for the class of 2021 will open on January 5, 2021.
Scholars are matched with a College Advisor, a ScholarMatch staff member who will support students with all things college.
Scholars learn career readiness skills, attend career workshops, and work with volunteer Career Coaches to receive support in creating professional documents, finding internships, and building their professional networks.
Scholars are eligible for $5,000 of financial support per year for school-related expenses (such as books or transportation), campus activities, student loans, and emergencies. Student loan funds are awarded upon college graduation.
