Oliver Scholars offers high-achieving Black and Latino students an alternative path, raising their sights and fostering the development of our next generation of change-makers, thought leaders, and trailblazers. Our work with Scholars includes up to twelve years of one-on-one support, summer coursework, and pre-career training. As a result, 100 percent of Scholars graduate high school.
