Who We Are
Hood Scholars is an organization dedicated to creating and offering Scholars from the “Hood” scholarships, networking, and incentivized opportunities to help them along their educational journey. Each of our efforts have been supported by the community who have generously donated to each scholarship campaign.
The goal with creating this organization is to contribute to a more positive narrative than what media has portrayed the Hood to be. We believe the Hood has more to offer and that educational should be a possibility to students no matter where you are from. Our mission is to advocate for Hood Scholars' seeking higher education.
What We Do
Our services include scholarship fundraising, mentorship, and networking opportunities and is not limited to a specific age group. We offer resources to any non-traditional student (pursuing higher education any time after high school and is not limited to age) or those supporting them as well.
We partnered with local restaurant owner, "Taco Mell" (Taco spot in Los Angeles Area) and offered a "Hood Scholar Pass" for a FREE WEEK WORTH OF of their food to any student who provided us with a #GoodGrade. In an attempt to not only focus on the results and reward those who may need support to get their good grade, we also offered tutoring, homework assistance and or requested support. 3 students were awarded a "Hood Scholar Pass."
