Our mentors are community leaders who guide, encourage, and inspire Scholars to achieve more than they could on their own. Scholars are matched with their mentor before beginning college and maintain the relationship throughout college and beyond.
Scholars have access to successful role models and leaders from a variety of industries. These connections give Scholars the exceptional opportunity to explore career paths, conduct informational interviews, and gain insights into the professional world.
Scholars are placed in structured peer advisory groups within the program. This provides them another avenue of support from fellow Scholars who better understand each other’s unique challenges.
Internships provide real-world knowledge and increased confidence that cannot be gained in the classroom. We coach Scholars in finding and making the most of their internships.
The annual Greenhouse Scholars Summer Symposium is a world-class, multi-day gathering of all our Scholars. Workshops, speakers, panel discussions, and group projects allow Scholars to explore our core values and learn leadership skills.
Scholars can apply for additional funds to support a wide range of projects, experiences, or specific unmet needs related to the vision and values of Greenhouse Scholars. Grants are made in amounts up to $2,000.
We provide a four-year renewable grant based on each Scholar’s individual financial circumstances and college expenses. Scholarships of up to $5,000 per year are renewable for four years.
