Share Ourselves is dedicated to paving the way for a brighter future by awarding scholarships to college-bound students who are the first generation in their family to attend college. To make this happen, students can apply for the First in Family College Scholarship Program through their high school. We believe in a collaborative approach and work closely with college counselors at local high schools to identify those students who will benefit the most from this award. Our goal is to support students who might face unique challenges and provide them with the necessary resources to pursue their dreams of higher education. It’s a hands-on process, ensuring that our scholarships have a meaningful impact on the lives of these ambitious and deserving individuals.

Join us in contributing to Share Ourselves’ First in Family College Scholarship Program. Your support directly contributes to changing the trajectory of students’ lives, creating opportunities and breaking barriers. Every donation is a step towards empowering these first-generation college students, helping them build a foundation for success and shaping a future where education is a pathway to a better life.

Who Does This Impact

During the summer months, families with students in need have the opportunity to register for our Back-to-School Program. Through this program, we extend our assistance to ensure that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has access to essential school supplies. In 2023, we helped over 1,550 students start the year with all the tools needed to learn. Registering for this program allows families to receive a new backpack filled with the necessary school materials, making a positive impact on both students and their families as they prepare for the upcoming school year.
