Scholar Programs

Oh the Places You'll Go
...destination...College and Life Sustaining Career!

FAME Scholars receive 360-degree support throughout each calendar year. Beyond the financial need-based scholarship provided, FAME Scholars receive enrichment support in the form of a Scholar Program Curriculum aimed at addressing the current academic, social, and emotional needs of this population. In addition, the FAME Scholar Program Curriculum is designed to increase the likelihood that all FAME Scholars continue their academic journeys at 4-year colleges and universities. FAME also offers a limited number of enrichment opportunities for students who are not a part of the FAME program and the larger community.
