Camellia, a graduate of Schenectady High School, alumna of Syracuse University and board member says: “Sponsor-A-Scholar held me accountable to my goals, and helped me reach them. Now it’s my turn to pay it forward to the next generation of Scholars.”

Jay, a graduate of Troy High School and alumnus of RPI says” Sponsor-A-Scholar has been there for me with many large milestones in my life from helping pick the right college all the way to helping weigh my options for different career offers. Sponsor-A-Scholar provided so much financial support that evened the playing field for my mom and me.”

Right now, more than 55% of our Scholars are first generation college students, and like Camellia and Jay, most are the first in their families to earn a degree.

They’re determined to achieve their goals, and we’re there to help them.

Every gift helps us inspire and empower promising students, connecting them to the resources, experiences and people that transform their lives. Give today!
