We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the Greater Washington, DC metropolitan area that is dedicated to the premise that academic success should be a factor of student capability, not circumstance.  Our program works to close the college completion gap via academic coaching, career mentoring, and non-traditional financial aid for expenses overlooked by conventional scholarship programs.


Helping extraordinary students earn college degrees through incentivized financial support, academic coaching, and career mentoring.


That all students – especially first-generation students from low-income, historically under-represented groups – within the Greater Washington, DC area will have the opportunity to earn a college degree.
