Thanks to generous gifts from philanthropists, the business community, and people like you, we have awarded $610,000 in scholarships to almost 70 local immigrant students since 2009.

The Esperanza Education Fund helps promising, driven immigrant students in the capital region through college scholarships and career mentorship. Together, scholars, mentors, and volunteers develop leadership skills – and friendships – while contributing to their local communities.

This unique program is open to all immigrant students, regardless of ethnicity, national origin, or immigration status. We have also helped launch similar scholarships around the country, including our sister organization, the Ascend Education Fund.
