OUR MISSION

Obtaining a college degree is a milestone for many students as life sometime gets in the way – particularly for those who are financially disadvantaged and have had difficult lives with roadblocks to success. The Athens StepUp Scholarship Program is dedicated to advancing the education of exceptionally promising students who have financial needs.

Not all students enrolled in public high schools have access to financial resources.  By offering scholarships to students in the Athens community, the goal of the Athens StepUp Scholarship Program is to assist low-income students in developing their talents, and excel academically.
