Since 1996, the Hoop Dreams Scholarship Fund
(HDSF) has helped send 920 students to college through the
combination of our year-long college & career prep programs and
the awarding of over 1,805 new and renewal academic college
scholarships. HDSF works to empower D.C. public high school
youth, so they can find their best pathways to college, career,
and life success. Hoop Dreams Scholarship Fund offers students a
unique opportunity to develop relationships with local
professionals, receive academic scholarships, build networks, and
access resources that will help enrich lives. Most of these
students are the first in their family to attend college and come
from very challenging social and economic circumstances. But more
than "getting kids into college" - HDSF prepares students for
life. Hoop Dreams Scholarship Fund is about building bridges of
success while empowering the pursuit of dreams.
