Who We Are
The MATE Scholarship Program is designed to provide resources to students transitioning from high school to Washington, D.C.-area universities. Aligning ourselves with current research on degree attainment, opportunity gaps, student retention, and student success, MATE’s founding committee members have elected to focus their support on Black students.
MATE Scholars receive
● Financial assistance to offset the costs of books and supplies for scholarship recipient’s first year of college;
● Mentorship by MATE committee members;
● Supplemental academic advising sessions with MATE committee members; and
● Access to social capital through MATE committee members and their various networks.
