The foundations supporting our efforts enable us to award more Evans Scholarships while addressing the barriers to college completion faced by today's college students. In addition to financial relief, Evans Scholars benefit from academic, professional and social resources that help them navigate the college landscape as they pursue their education and career goals. We help these deserving young men and women secure a high-quality education, build a sustainable lifestyle and participate and flourish in the workplace.

We receive nearly 100 grants from foundations all across the country each year. Below are just a few of the foundations supporting our work.
