Challenge

Higher education is out of reach for many talented Latino/a graduates from undersourced high schools who lack the financial resources to attend college and do not qualify for loans and other scholarship assistance. SLI provides counsel and special programming to improve their chances for admission to college. SLI's scholarship fund makes their attendance affordable.

Solution

SLI is dedicated to providing equal access to education to all students. We are working to provide educational equity for North Carolina's Latino students by giving them the tools and support to achieve academic and personal excellence.
This fund provides college scholarships for Latino students who have completed SLI’s intensive three-year program and are accepted to college but lack sufficient funds to matriculate.

Long-Term Impact

Providing promising Latino students with college education gives them the tools to succeed in college and assist their communities. This is critical to prevent the Latino population from forming a permanent underclass in society.
