Program Description

ScholarMatch is a nimble 25-person organization that engages 500 volunteers per year to serve over 1500 students nationwide at every point of the college journey.

ScholarMatch's services span a seven-year continuum to support students throughout their entire college journey. Beginning in high school, we deliver targeted in-person and online support to students who are the first in their family to attend college. College students receive the critical combination of 1:1 advising by staff, strategic scholarship support and career mentoring to support their path all the way to college graduation. Our services are free for students and available for contract by outside community-based organizations and foundations. Learn about our programs here.
