Accessive works with students from low-income backgrounds to empower them to graduate high school, attend and graduate college, and achieve their goals. Selected scholars are awarded with high-touch, rigorous support from mentors around the country.

Students will work one-on-one with their assigned mentor to develop a strong relationship, encourage college interest, and navigate the college application process. In supplement of our core program, we partner with other educational, commercial, and governmental institutions to provide students in need with quality academic and pre-professional support.

The Accessive Scholars program is limited to a select number of students each year. Applications are accepted year-round and reviewed on a rolling basis. Applicants must meet all criteria listed below to be considered for selection.
