FUTURE SUPERSTARS Scholarship

In partnership with the Golden State Warriors, we provide annual scholarships to highly motivated but under-achieving students from impoverished communities within the Bay Area. With our assistance, students go on four-year colleges and vocational schools. In the past, we’ve chosen five students and awarded $1,500 per person but starting 2018, the awards amount will increase to $4,000.

Five winners will be chosen to receive $4,000 scholarships. Students will be paired with mentors to help them with college readiness and life skills. If you are a teacher or counselor from one of these three unified school districts (San Francisco, Alameda, Oakland), nominate a student today.
