Program Description

The mission of the Chang Chavkin Scholars Program is to support rural, high achieving, first generation students with the funding and resources needed to graduate from a four year college that meets their potential.

The Program will provide guidance to Scholars and their families during the college search and application process. We advise parents and students on the college selection decision and help navigate financial aid awards. Scholarship recipients will receive up to $15,000 per year for four years toward the cost of attendance at an accredited U.S. college or university. While in college, the Program will advise and support our Scholars so they stay in school and reach their goal of a college degree.

In addition, we work with our partner high schools to provide support and resources in order to enhance existing programs.
