We support hundreds of exceptional students

Bay Scholars makes it possible for promising low-income students to receive an empowering, change-making education. We financially and personally support Bay Area families that cannot afford the high school education they want for their children.

$5.5 million in Scholarships

Bay Scholars has disbursed over $5.5 million in Scholarships, providing access to private college prep education for hundreds of deserving students.
