Supporting Black Scholars from the Start
Where Our Scholars Go
Over 90% of our scholars attend the top 100 colleges in the nation and over 80% attend the top 50 colleges. More than that, over 40% of Thrive Scholars attend Ivy League+ schools.
Graduating from an elite college can directly impact earning potential. Elite colleges offer smaller class sizes, stronger student support services, and better financial aid packages. That means a better learning experience and, for our Scholars, usually little or no college debt upon graduation. Elite colleges are a pipeline to leadership in America, opening doors of opportunity. 49% of corporate leaders and 50% of government leaders graduate from only 12 selective colleges and universities.

Together, we’re forging paths to extraordinary futures.
