Greenhouse Scholars' vision is to create a community of leaders who will evolve the communities of the world. We work with the next generation of leaders and change agents, and together change the trajectory of their families, their communities, and broader global communities.
We are not a typical scholarship. Our unique, Whole Person approach provides personal and professional support, in addition to financial subsidies, during all 4 years of college.
OUR 8 PROGRAM COMPONENTS
IMPACT We provide a strategic framework and various inputs from our community to enable each Scholar to elevate their impact. Additionally, we mobilize Scholars, both individually and as a group, to positively impact younger generations of students from low-income communities.
FINANCIAL SUPPORT We provide two, separate means of support. Scholars may apply for a four-year, renewable scholarship award of up to $5,000 per year based on individual financial circumstances and college expenses. Scholars may also apply for additional, 'flex funding' in amounts up to $2,000 to support a wide range of projects and experiences related to the vision and values of Greenhouse Scholars.
SUMMER SYMPOSIUM We host an annual, world-class, multi-day gathering to bring together all our Scholars. Workshops, speakers, panel discussions, and group projects allow Scholars to explore our core values, expand their thinking, and cultivate their leadership skills.
SKILLS MODULES We share the broad range of our community's expertise with our Scholars through targeted, modular online content that develops leadership/life skills and professional skills.
INTERNSHIP We coach our Scholars through the process of finding and making the most of their internships, while also arranging in-person learning opportunities at various organizations.
PEER SUPPORT Scholars celebrate and support one another, gathering in small groups across the country on a specific day annually.
PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING Successful leaders from a variety of industries engage with Scholars, broadening their networks and connections. This diverse network motivates Scholars to think strategically about their direction and impact and provides essential insights and connections into the professional world.
MENTORSHIP 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 prior to college and maintain the relationship throughout college and beyond.
