About Us

Welcome to Step Up.

For many families, choosing a school is limited by their zip code. They dream of making a change that truly transforms their child’s life. But they worry their daughter, who hopes to be a doctor one day, or their son, perhaps a future judge, may never get to fulfill their dreams.

Then they learn about Step Up For Students and its scholarship programs. Suddenly, a world of possibilities unfolds.

Now they have options. Even children who were failing or on the verge of dropping out of school. Maybe they get their high school diploma or become the first child in their family not only to attend college, but graduate. They may even become a doctor or a judge or anything they set their young minds on becoming. This is what Step Up For Students is about: giving families hope and giving their children a chance to make their dreams a reality.
