Assisting college students
to reach their full potential
Every semester, a new class of future leaders prepare for graduate studies, gaining knowledge they will use to create a better tomorrow. But when minority students have a 6 year graduation rate of 43%*, there is need for support to ensure they can succeed. Our foundation supports the development of leaders through mentorship and scholarships.
