Scholars Latino Initiative closed 2021 with a record-setting year-end campaign in which more than 80 individuals, organizations, foundations, and businesses gave more than $58,000 to support Latino/a/x students who dream of going to college.
Campaign matching funds were generously provided SLI Board of Directors chair Jason Good and member Fawn-Amber Montoya and Cecilia Barbosa (cBe Consulting), Janette Gallardo (Vitta Solutions), and SLI’s founder.
SLI’s mission is to support Latino/a/x high school students with college access through rigorous academic challenge, leadership development, scholarships, and supportive mentorships. It serves young people who experience unique circumstances as first-generation college students; as talented but often invisible individuals; as children from families that are disproportionately under resourced and disenfranchised; and as members of a growing population in Virginia and the U.S. that is underrepresented on college campuses.
With the support of generous donors, SLI has already awarded its scholars more than $375,000 in scholarships, computer awards, and dual enrollment tuition support, helping them attend more than 20 colleges and universities.
