The Simon Family Foundation's "Simon Scholars Program" was created to help economically disadvantaged students who face difficult life circumstances advance themselves through a college education. It is an especially unique scholarship program in that it begins in the summer before a student's junior year in high school. The Simon Scholars Program offers its participants tools, mentoring and support that create successful college applicants with the ultimate goal of developing confident individuals who remain highly competitive throughout their college years and beyond.
The Simon Family Foundation understands that it takes much more than financial support to change lives. Thus, the Foundation has developed and become known for its intensive, hands-on college preparatory support program. Beyond granting a $16,000 college scholarship, we offer our recipients a host of resources aimed at whole-person development while in high school.
