ScholarShot was Founded


of Our Scholars Succeeding

First Generation College Degrees in Dallas County

ScholarShot was founded in 2009 by concerned business professionals, educators and community volunteers who saw numerous well-meaning college advisement and “access” programs failing at-risk students. In Texas, 9 out of 10 of these students who get into college drop out. ScholarShot has developed a proven model of academic navigation, personal guidance and financial support that reverses this outcome with 90% of our Scholars succeeding in earning life-changing vocational, associate or undergraduate degrees. Leveraging the success of the ScholarShot model, our Degree Dallas Campaign is on track to produce 500 first generation college degrees from Dallas County.


ScholarShot helps at-risk students exit poverty by completing career-ready vocational, associate, or bachelor degrees.
