Denise is an intelligent young woman looking for an opportunity to build a better future for herself, her family, and her community. She graduated high school four years ago but was unable to begin college due to her current financial situation. Finding work where she lives without any schooling beyond high school is very difficult. She is currently unemployed and living with her mom along with several other relatives. A college education would allow Denise to be independent while helping support her mom and other relatives. A RISING scholarship will not only allow her to finally start her college education but also connects her with a mentor and a local Resource Center, all of which provide opportunity and hope, placing Denise one step closer to achieving her dreams and breaking the cycle of poverty in her community.

Encourage this student as they embark on a journey toward finishing their education! When they log in to the Student section of our website, they'll be able to look at all of thier messages from donors and supporters alike.
It all starts with access to education. For RISING Students, this means providing whatever each student needs to return to school–tuition, uniforms, lunches, and more.
We all need the help of people who've been there before. RISING mentors care for and encourage the holistic growth of each student–mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
These are the tools students need to succeed, such as access to computers and the Internet and a local Resource Center to study, connect, and grow together.
