We’re proud of our 279 student scholars and 425 graduate scholars

Our Impact

We believe rigorously evaluating our programs is crucial to ensuring we are making an impact. We require bi-annual academic and community service reports from all student scholars, conduct in-depth annual surveys of our graduate scholars, and 3 month and 1 year evaluations of all micro-grants projects.
