LEAD Scholars Program

Celebrating 20 years of First Gen Excellence at SCU!


We are thrilled to be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the LEAD Scholars program, and we invite you to join us in honoring this milestone by going All In for LEAD on Day of Giving. For two decades, our program has been providing first-generation college students with the support and resources they need to succeed in higher education. With your help, we can continue to make a positive impact in the lives of these students. 

Your donation will go towards scholarships, emergency funding, and other initiatives that help first-generation college students overcome challenges and achieve their dreams. By supporting our program, you are investing in the future of these students and empowering them to create a better life for themselves and their communities. Thank you for your generosity and for joining us in celebrating this special anniversary.
