Scholarship Plus is a scholarship and college support program for persevering, low-income NYC students, most often first-generation college students. Receiving a scholarship PLUS social supports make all the difference to the scholars’ attending college, and above all, graduating. This two-pronged approach has enabled a 100% college graduation rate since its inception 10 years ago. In its second year of funding, The Meringoff Foundation will be supporting the expansion of the Scholarship Plus mentoring program at a critical point in the organization's larger strategic growth plan of doubling the number of students served.
"As a minority student, you face many obstacles that are different than mypeers. SPlus has been a source of unwavering support during a pretty challenging four years of undergrad."
