South Central Scholars

For many students in underprivileged communities throughout the world, even the very thought of applying for or attending college may seem like entertaining a mere fantasy rather than an achievable goal. Students that grow up in crime-ridden neighborhoods, suffering from financial hardships and household disturbances, are often left out of common college plans made by typical high school students. South Central Los Angeles is one such disadvantaged region, and home to many families struggling with poverty and social dangers. br>
Our staff at South Central Scholars Foundation strives to enhance the lives of disadvantaged students through higher education. Our primary goal is to encourage and mentor students residing in South Central Los Angeles to not only attend college and graduate school, but to have the necessary funds to cover the cost of tuition through scholarships and summer job opportunities. We also provide high school students with information about current internship positions that can be used as stepping stones into the corporate world.

For additional information regarding our college scholarships, internships, mentorships, and career opportunities, ask your local educational counselor or visit us at www.SouthCentralScholars.org.
