Greenhouse Scholars is catalyzing change in low-income communities by cultivating leaders and role models from those communities.
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.
Scholars may apply for two forms of financial support each year; a four-year, renewable scholarship award of up to $5,000 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.
An annual, world-class, multi-day gathering that brings together all our Scholars. Workshops, speakers, panel discussions, and group projects allow Scholars to explore our core values, expand their thinking, and cultivate their leadership skills.
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.
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.
Scholars celebrate and support one another, gathering in small groups across the country on a specific day annually.
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.
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.

Internships provide real-world knowledge and increased confidence that cannot be gained in the classroom. We coach Scholars in finding and making the most of their internships.
Scholars are placed in structured peer advisory groups within the program. This provides them another avenue of support from fellow Scholars who better understand each other’s unique challenges.
Scholars have access to successful role models and leaders from a variety of industries. These connections give Scholars the exceptional opportunity to explore career paths, gain insights into the professional world, and build an authentic network that will accelerate their future impact.
