Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO) Scholars program prepares low-income public high school students to get to and through college.
SEO Scholars is built on the belief that low-income students can excel even at the country’s best colleges and we have the results to prove it. Not only are all of our low-income Scholars accepted to four-year colleges but 95% graduate within six years and 80% graduate in four.
ABOUT SEO SCHOLARS
SEO Scholars is a rigorous eight-year academic program that prepares low-income public high school students for admission to the nation’s most competitive colleges—and supports them through college graduation.
In high school, our Scholars attend SEO’s rigorous academic classes on Saturdays, after school and in the summers. They also attend SAT prep courses, work with tutors and mentors, and attend summer enrichment programs.
In college, our highly-trained staff of counselors works one-on-one with our first-generation students through year-round communications and a series of career-readiness events. They offer psychosocial support, academic advising, internship placement and more.
OUR #GIVINGTUESDAY GOAL
Our rigorous eight-year academic program prepares low-income public high school students for admission to the nation’s most competitive colleges—and supports them through college graduation. We have to turn away more than six times the number of students who apply. Instead, we want to serve more students in 2015.
