    ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP ACADEMY

    Mission

    The Scholarship Academy’s mission is to be the premier higher education planning resource advancing students beyond financial aid obstacles to achieve scholastic goals at accredited colleges, universities and technical institutions.

    Vision

    “Transforming Average Students Into Exemplary Models of Leadership, Scholarship And Servanthood”

    What We Do

    The Scholarship Academy is the nation’s only curriculum-based scholarship preparatory program that trains low-income, first generation students how to use the principles of leadership, entrepreneurship and civic engagement to reduce student loan debt and increase eligibility for entry level positions.

    WHY WE DO IT

    $26,600 – That’s the average debt facing college grads. With college tuition upwards of $25,000 and the average student receiving only $2815 in aid, college is viewed as an obstacle instead of an opportunity for our target families.  At The Scholarship Academy, we are acutely aware of the fact that the average guidance counselor only has 38 minutes to helps students explore financial aid options.  In contrast, Scholarship Academy students receive on-average 8 hours of intense scholarship prep support to help them build solid scholarship brands, identify tailored scholarship/internship resources, and craft winning applications.
