Beyond a one-time gift for the first year of college - Future Sacramento is a robust five-year resource backed scholarship that creates a long-term connection with each scholarship recipient.
First-in-family college students have more than the financial burden of college. The simple fear of not knowing how to pay for college could discourage any student, halting them from continuing on a track to college admission. The numerous obstacles faced by low-income students could derail them from achieving college success even before they begin their first day of class.
Awareness that funding for college is available gives students the confidence to work towards college admission by continuing to challenge themselves with rigorous coursework and aim to complete high school as a college-ready graduate.
