Program Description

The One Voice Robert W. Sanderson Scholars Program begun in 1990 makes it possible for low income students to attend wonderful colleges on scholarships provided by the colleges themselves.

Our Scholars Program prepares and places low income inner city Los Angeles high school students in colleges throughout the United States. Starting in the 11th grade, we work with teachers and counselors from a number of inner city high schools to select approximately 25 students who will become a part of our program each year. We work with these students over the next 5 years to help place them and then support them in their journey through college. Our program is the first of its kind to carefully monitor and follow students all the way through their undergraduate and graduate school careers.
