At Thrive Scholars, our goal is to see talented low-income students of color develop inter-generational wealth and financial security, and become the diverse corporate, civic, and academic leaders our country so desperately needs.
Our comprehensive, data-driven, high-touch program model focuses on the key inflection points that can be the difference between just graduating from any college, and graduating from a top college with the grades, degree, career skills, and network needed to thrive in any career. Over our six-year program, Scholars benefit from admissions and intensive academic preparation before college and a comprehensive set of academic, personal, social-emotional, financial, and career supports throughout college.
Thrive Scholars originated in Los Angeles as South Central Scholars (“SCS”) and spent the first 13 years refining its integrated high school-through-career program model. The founders replicated this model in Boston in 2014 as Noonan Scholars, and then merged the two programs into SCS Noonan Scholars in 2017. As part of its national expansion strategy, SCS Noonan Scholars rebranded as Thrive Scholars in 2020, and has begun launching new regions across the country to enhance the organization’s fundraising capabilities and Scholar recruitment efforts, looking to grow the number of students served by more than 300%.
