Challenge

A growing number of Latino students enrolled in high schools of the Shenandoah Valley are excelling in their studies and would thrive in college -- but often they do not have access to financial support to make their college dreams possible.

Solution

By collaborating with partner colleges and universities, 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 SLI endowed scholarship will provide financial assistance to these scholars.

Long-Term Impact

Each year, 5-8 promising Latino students at two high schools in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia are selected and inducted into SLI's 3-year mentorship, leadership and college preparation program. The students are supported through the college readiness and application process, and guided to colleges and universities committed to providing support to individuals unlikely to receive needed state/federal assistance. The SLI program supports college dreams and builds aspiration in communities.
