“Scholarship America changes lives every day by helping students afford a college education. Because my book offers inspirational advice from some amazing people on how to succeed in life, Scholarship America is the perfect partner organization for this project.”

Among Scholarship America's valued partners is the interactive marketing firm BGT Partners. BGT provided pro bono web design and development support for Scholarship America. Below, BGT's Rick Longman explains why the firm felt so passionate about our work.
Our stellar reputation and consistent four-star Charity Navigator rating brought BGT and many other new partners to Scholarship America in the past year. We thank all our supporters and partners, new and continuing, for their support of students. To find out more, visit the Partners section of our main website.
Nearly 1/4 of the U.S. population owes a collective $700 billion in student loan debt. Scholarship America is committed to helping more students graduate from college with less debt.
When our organization formed 50 years ago, our founder asked members of his community to give anything they could -- even one dollar -- to support local students. Today, a gift of just $1 a day -- for a week, for a month, or for a year -- can help ensure that students are able to achieve their goals.
