Alexandria students need your help now more than ever.
The need for college scholarships among families that struggle financially in Alexandria has simply never been greater in our 36-year program history than Right Now.
The challenges of the Pandemic: With the countless challenges posed by COVID and the negative economic impact of COVID for students with financial need in Alexandria, we continue to see a sharp increase in the need for college scholarships among Titans.
Supporting students for the long haul: We provide scholarships through all four years of college. There has been a sizable increase – a 25% increase! – in applications for renewal scholarships to support students through their sophomore, junior and senior years of college. This is great news as it demonstrates our students are continuing pursue their degrees, but it also means they are relying on YOU for greater support.
Racial and Socio-economic Equity: Given the nationwide movement for racial equity and justice and the need for us all to stand up in support of that effort here in Alexandria, we are working to do better for Black students and families. Each year, more than half of our scholarships support Black students in Alexandria. We are implementing ways to expand that financial support and provide even greater college advising and college access opportunity for Black students. Your financial gift will help make that increased support possible.
Providing scholarships and college advising to students with financial need in our community has simply never been more important than now. Thank you for providing this critical support!
