Growing stronger

every day

Our scholars have secured spots in some 

of the most coveted universities across the States, creating a powerful and an accessible alumni network.

Seed Method

"When evaluating student loan debt, Black & Latino students rely more on loans to pay for college than other racial groups. At Seeds of Fortune, we are here to decrease debt and increase the overall wealth in minority communities."

Scholars must be able to transition from the world of academia into the workforce. We assist them through professional development workshops and internships programs.

We assist our scholars with the college and scholarship application process to maximize their chances of getting full rides to higher education institutions.

The Woman Behind Seeds of Fortune

 

“A Posse Leadership Scholar at Babson College

on a $250,000 scholarship graduating in 2014.

I believed it was my duty to help ease the financial burdens of those in my generation;

so I created a scholarship program to help teen girls obtain local and national scholarships”
