We Are Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar

We connect promising students with the mentors, resources and opportunities that prepare them for college success.
We have inspired and empowered more than 240 Scholars in Albany, Schenectady and Troy to earn their college degrees. 
We believe all students should have access to the networks of support they need to earn a degree and pursue their dreams.



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.
