Scholars Program

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. Preference is given to students who are the first in their family to attend college.

Applications for the 2020-2021 Scholars Program are currently closed.

Dynamic Advising

Scholars are matched with a College Advisor, a ScholarMatch staff member who will support students with all things college. Scholars also join a cohort of peers that will meet monthly through Zoom to learn and grow together.

Career Mentoring

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.

Financial Support

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.
