We work with students from Albany, Schenectady and Troy, NY. Most of our Scholars are the first in their families to go to college. Read their stories.


Mentors work with students to help them gain the skills and confidence to graduate from college. Hear from Andy, a mentor of an Albany Scholar.



Donors provide funding for the college readiness programming and student sponsorships that transform the lives of our Scholars. You can make a gift today.
