Challenge

The Shenandoah Valley has a large number of Latino students who excel at school and would thrive in college, but do not have the financial means to make their college dreams come true.

Solution

By collaborating with partner colleges and universities, SV-SLI matches graduating students of the program with 4-year institutions committed to providing partial support to individuals who are unlikely or ineligible to receive the state and federal financial assistance they need. The SV-SLI endowed scholarship will provide financial assistance to these scholars.

Long-Term Impact

SV-SLI selects 3-4 hardworking and promising Latino students each year from local high schools in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia for entry into a three-year mentorship and college preparation program. Upon graduation, SV-SLI scholars are matched with universities committed to providing support to students who are unlikely to receive the state and federal assistance they need. SV-SLI helps these students fulfill their dream of attending college and becoming role models for future generations
