We are valley natives whose philosophy is to create resources within our own communities. As students from the Central Valley, who are the first in their families to proceed with an educational career, we know by first-hand experience the obstacles students with our identities face when applying to prestigious universities. With the clear lack of people of color, Queer identifying folk, students with disabilities, and other underserved populations attending prestigious universities, Central Valley Scholars created a hands-on system of workshops, personal mentorships, and scholarships to directly fill students' needs to educational success.
Central Valley Scholars is a safe space for all historically underserved communities. No matter one's documentation status, no matter one's sexual orientation, no matter one's gender identity, no matter one's ethnicity, no matter one's disability, or no matter one's struggle, Central Valley Scholars opens our doors to you, we advocate for you, we support you, and we represent you.
