Greenhouse Scholars was started in 2005 with a vision to create a community of leaders who will evolve the communities of the world. We believe that education, particularly the education of the cadres of potential leaders being left behind by their circumstances, is the single most powerful way to affect major issues across communities and to scale impact.

Our rigorous application and interview process enables us to select high-school seniors who demonstrate our core values of leadership, community, accountability, and relentlessness. Our comprehensive Whole Person program supports them throughout their college experience and includes: one-on-one mentorship, professional networking, peer support, internships, leadership training, an annual Summer Symposium, community service, flex funding, and a financial grant.

Our program has an immediate impact on the lives of low-income college students and is creating lasting change as we realize our vision of creating a community of leaders who will evolve the communities of the world.  We are, they are, catalysts for lasting change.
