ScholarShot's DegreeDallas Campaign will produce 500 first generation college degrees for Dallas County over the next 7 - 10 years.
A high school diploma is no longer enough to fulfill our market or the potential of our youth, 86% of whom are from low income households. A career-ready college degree is the true tipping point to make good on our K-12 investments and our future. ScholarShot's unique combination of success mapping, one on one mentoring and academic management provide much more than financial aid, they provide the tools needed to secure a degree - and a future.
OUR WORK: GroundFloor invested $25k in seed funding and mentoring focused on developing an external communications strategy to increase awareness and validating corporate community support and foundation prospecting to increase funding. Mentoring from a business services and consulting expert helped to develop a comprehensive project plan to scale their impact. ScholarShot earned an additional $12,500 for winning a weekly prize during 2017's OneUp the Vote.
