  • Awarding scholarships for tuition is only the beginning of what Greenhouse Scholars has to offer. Our seven program components work together to provide both financial and personal support - providing our Scholars every tool they will need to achieve their goals in college and beyond. Ultimately, we are ensuring that students who thrived academically in high school and in their communities will have the resources to do so at the collegiate level—and more importantly, after their four years in our program are over. We provide a four-year renewable grant based on each Scholar's individual financial circumstances and college expenses. Scholarships of up to $5,000 per year are renewable for four years.

    Eligibility:

    -Have a cumulative, unweighted GPA of 3.5 or above
    -Be a graduating high school senior planning to attend a four-year accredited academic institution
    -Be a high school senior in and legal resident of Colorado, Georgia, or Illinois
    -Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.
    -Demonstrate financial need: household annual income may not exceed $70,000
    -Have a strong interest and commitment to the community
    -Have an ability to persevere through difficult circumstances
    -Have excellent leadership skills
