Pathways to Success is changing the culture of college going by offering sizeable scholarships to Coachella Valley undergraduate students (like you) with demonstrated financial need who wish to complete a college degree.  If awarded a scholarship you will be linked to a wide variety of student support systems designed to help you succeed in college.

Our goal at Pathways to Success is to provide the financial resources and student support services to students who have clear career goals, students who have demonstrated leadership or involvement in their community or school, and students who have the desire and motivation to succeed.  Our GPA requirements for eligibility are broad.  We require a 2.0 GPA or above.  We fully recognize that your GPA should not be the sole determining factor in your ability to attend and succeed in college.  But, we also recognize that you may need additional help, advising and academic assistance once you are in college. 

For that reason, you will be linked to Pathways to Success support services that provide workshops on college readiness and financial management, training in how to navigate your way through college, training in core study skills, and one-on-one counseling.  In addition, you will also have the opportunity to be matched with a mentor who has experience and knowledge in areas that you show a desire for learning more about.  Our website is packed with important links to the best programs and services designed to guide you towards the best choice of college or university and best strategies for success while in college.
