PROGRAM OVERVIEW

“Did you know that less than 10% of low-income students graduate from college, in contrast to 54% of their wealthier peers?”

Alexander Hamilton Scholars provides support and guidance to low-income, high achieving students which in turn, gives them the opportunity to earn a college degree and build purpose-driven lives. 

Each year, we select 35 to 40 high school juniors nationally to join our program based on financial need, demonstrated academic excellence, commitment to service, and leadership potential. Through the Alexander Hamilton Leaders Academy, Scholars complete a rigorous 5-year program designed to provide them with practical tools for success in college and the post-college world.
