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.
OUR PROGRAM, ELIGIBILITY, AND APPLICATION PROCESS
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. For more information on eligibility and the application process, please visit: http://greenhousescholars.org/our-scholars/become-a-scholar/.
OUR 8 PROGRAM COMPONENTS
IMPACT Scholars are provided with a strategic framework to elevate their impact, both individually and as a group, and inspire younger generations of students from low-income communities.
FINANCIAL SUPPORT Scholars may apply for two forms of financial support each year; a four-year, renewable scholarship award of up to $5,000 per year and ‘flex funding’ grants of up to $2,000 per award. Flex Funding grants support a wide range of projects and experiences related to the vision and values of Greenhouse Scholars.
SUMMER SYMPOSIUM An annual, world-class, multi-day gathering that brings together all of 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 The broad range of our community’s expertise is shared with our Scholars through targeted, modular online content to help develop personal and professional skills.
INTERNSHIP Scholars are coached through the process of finding and making the most of their internships, along with other 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 professionals from the Greenhouse Scholars community 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 Greenhouse Scholars 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.
