The Scholarship Academy, the nation's only curriculum-based scholarship preparatory program, was created to address the unyielding college access barriers that exist within the shadows of the $96 billion student loan market. Our program seeks to de-mystify the financial aid process for low-income, first generation students and equip these students with the tools to aggressively pursue financial aid options. Ultimately, our goal is to use education as a tool to level the playing field and eliminate cycles of poverty in our nation's poorest communities.
