MEET THE SCHOLARS

NEW FACES IN LEADERSHIP

Since 2002, Act Six has selected and trained 814 scholars from seven cities in 121 cadres for 16 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 90% 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 85%.
