Each ScholarShot Scholar is matched with an Academic Manager to develop degree plans, budgets and monitor progress. Students are required to submit bi-monthly updates on grades, course progress, concerns and successes. More than just funding, this hands-on management is the proven difference in the success of our program.
Funding varies according to the institution the student is attending: up to $3,000 per year for a 2-year institution, or up to $6,000 per year for a 4 year institution. Funding is only available for in-state accredited public institutions.
