Philadelphia Scholars


The Philadelphia Scholars program helps YOU get to college! We currently provide Last Dollar Scholarships to graduates of 20 public and charter high schools across Philadelphia. Since the program started in 1990, we have given out over $13 million to more than 2,700 students!

We provide our Scholars with mentorship opportunities, workshops with a college success and career prep focus, and ongoing support. 

We also work with the College Access Program, which helps students get prepared for college by holding workshops, helping students apply for financial aid, giving essay writing advice, and more. We have College Access Coordinators at five high schools.
