An Evening with Scholarship America: November 2, 2023 Investing in students.
Above all else.


An Evening with Scholarship America

On November 2, 2023, Scholarship America brought together a select group of executives, philanthropists and education supporters for An Evening with Scholarship America, held in the Grand Ballroom and private restaurant on the 100th floor of Central Park Tower and featuring a keynote conversation with #1 New York Times bestselling author, advocate and public health expert Chelsea Clinton, moderated by journalist and author Raakhee Mirchandani.

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and attendees, we raised over $620,000 to support our mission of eliminating barriers to educational success for all students!

In addition to a curated cocktail/mocktail experience, cuisine from Michelin-starred chefs and stunning views of the city, attendees heard from Families of Freedom Scholarship recipient Joseph Palombo and Dream Award Scholar Phuong Tran Nguyen, both of whom were able to pursue their academic goals with Scholarship America’s support—and both of whom are now part of our organization, on our Board and our development staff, respectively.

Thank you to everyone who made this evening such a special event, and we look forward to welcoming you to future Scholarship America gatherings!

Thank you to our sponsors:
