The Linda Lorelle Scholarship is dedicated to providing college scholarships to a population of students often overlooked by other scholarship funds. Many of our students have average grades, yet they have a burning desire to go to college and are capable of succeeding, if given the support and encouragement they so desperately need. Unlike other scholarship funds, we don’t just award them scholarships and say “good luck”. We give them the tools they need to not only change the trajectory of their lives, but their families, as well. The saying goes, “it takes a village to raise a child.” We are the village.
College Prep/Life Skills/Career
The Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund founders realized early on that students need more than money to truly change the trajectory of their lives; they need college preparatory and life skills training, and career guidance. For 28+ years, the Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund has used a two-pronged approach to address this need with the SMART Seminar Series and the annual SmartUp Houston College & Career Conference.
