ScholarMatch’s mission is to support first-generation college students from low-income backgrounds to earn a bachelor’s degree within five years. We provide virtual individualized advising, targeted financial support, and career mentoring all the way to graduation
ScholarMatch was founded in 2010 as a crowdfunding platform for scholarships and has since evolved into a direct-services program with a mission to support low-income, first-generation students to and through college. In 2013, ScholarMatch shifted toward a comprehensive programmatic model that includes individualized college success and career advising, targeted financial support, and ongoing mentorship and emotional support for students.
