Overview

Our program and scholarship goes beyond helping students access college, we support our recipients with persisting to college graduation and obtaining their college degree. We focus on at-risk groups to help improve our community by breaking the cycle of lower education attainment and removing barriers to professional careers. Administering the Future Sacramento scholarship involves a unique, long-term connection with each scholarship recipient. The longevity, consistency and in-depth impact of our service makes our unique and more effective.

Program 1

College-Access Mentoring

Future Sacramento provides college-access mentoring support through 11th and 12th grade, helping students stay on the path to gaining college admission. Acceptance early in high school removes students' fear of not knowing how to pay for college and instills the confidence to continue towards the goal of a college degree.

Program 2

Renewable Financial-Need Scholarship

Starting the first year in college, we provide mentoring and begin to provide financial-need scholarships. As part of administrating scholarships, we work with each student to carefully determine financial need and calculate individualized award amounts.

Students may apply for a range of scholarships that vary in focus and award amount, but few fund more than one payment during the first year of college. Students may renew the Future Sacramento scholarship for up to five years as they progress towards achieving an undergraduate/baccalaureate college degree.

Our extensive financial aid advocacy maximizes financial aid grants so that scholarship funding fills the need after grants and other scholarships are applied. Financial aid advocacy increases students' funding resources and improves their financial literacy.
