Greenhouse Scholars Scholarship

We’re here to ensure that low-income students who have demonstrated the values of leadership, community, accountability, and relentlessness in high school continue to thrive in college and beyond. Greenhouse Scholars' unique Whole Person approach for supporting each selected Scholar includes the following for their 4 years in college: one-on-one pairing with a mentor, access to a professional networking program, structured peer support, a three-day annual leadership-training symposium, support securing an internship, and flexible funding grants to pay for unique experiences and opportunities. We also provide an annually renewable, need-based college scholarship of up to $5,000 per year (up to $20,000 in total over 4 years).


Our program helps our Scholars be catalysts for permanent change - successfully navigating the college experience, excelling as leaders on campus and off, and becoming outstanding professionals who give back to their communities after graduation.
