Meet Our Scholars

Point Foundation is a champion for access and success in higher education. Since our first class of 8 students in 2002, Point’s class size grew past 550 students for the 2022-23 academic year. Among our Flagship, Community College and BIPOC Program Scholars, more than half are first-generation stuents, 84% identify as people of color or bi/multiracial, and nearly a quarter identify as transgender or nonbinary.

Below, you can meet our Flagship Scholars, students who are earning their undergraduate, graduate or doctoral degrees. Visit Point’s Community College Scholarship Program page or the BIPOC Scholarship page to meet more Point scholars.
