Rainier Scholars

Rainier Scholars cultivates the academic potential and leadership skills of hardworking, underrepresented students of color. They offer a pathway to college graduation for Seattle-area low-income students of color by providing access to transformative educational opportunities. Scholars engage in a proven, 12-year model that brings together the academic preparation, leadership development and personalized support they need to graduate from a four-year college and become career professionals and leaders in our community.

I had the great privilege of working with many scholars during my years as a middle school art and leadership teacher at a Rainier Scholars partner school. Witnessing the resiliency, creativity and leadership of these students during a small part of their journey to academic and professional success places Rainier Scholars as a local organization close to my heart.
