SCHOLARSHOT PROVIDES MORE THAN FINANCIAL AID
Most at-risk students fail for lack of a plan. The ScholarShot SuccessMap helps our ScholarShot Scholars manage a budget, collateral requirements, deadlines and an academic plan to succeed. In cases where students are not academically prepared, our SuccessMap will include community college prior to embarking on a four-year degree. This step can make the difference between dropping out and getting a degree. Some ScholarShot Scholars will include vocational/technical certificates in their SuccessMaps.
ScholarShot sources many of its candidates from K-12 after-school programs with well-established mentor-student relationships. ScholarShot provides the setting for these relationships to extend beyond high school. Our program equips mentors and students with the guidance, academic plan, funding requirements and accountability to achieve success in higher education.
Each ScholarShot Scholar is matched with an Academic Manager to monitor progress. Students are required to submit bi-monthly updates on grades, course progress, concerns and successes. Our Academic Managers are skilled at navigating college degree plans to hold schools and our ScholarShot Scholars accountable. More than just funding, this hands-on management is the proven difference in the success of our program.
