MEET THE SCHOLARS
NEW FACES IN LEADERSHIP
Since 2002, Act Six has selected and trained 712 scholars from seven cities in 105 cadres for 13 partner colleges. They represent six continents of the world, speak 70 native languages, and represent the very best emerging urban and community leaders that these communities have to offer. While 87% of scholars come from low-income households or are the first in their family to go to college, they are defying the odds with graduation rates of 83%.
