Education, Determination, Generosity

The Dr. Doretha Pressey Southern Scholars Initiative is a 501c3 nonprofit scholarship and college completion program dedicated to creating access, equity, and success for students of color from low income communities in the rural South. We are motivated and guided by the legacy of our founder, Dr. Doretha Pressey, a passionate and determined educator who committed her life to generously helping those in need. Education, Determination, and Generosity were three of the core principles that exemplified Dr. Pressey's life and work and they have become the three major tenets upon which our work is based.

ABOUT US

Students of color from the Rural South attend and complete college at rates far lower than the national average.  The Southern Scholars Initiative is committed to eradicating this disparity.

PROGRAMS & SERVICES

We offer our scholars a comprehensive array of innovative, evidence-based, and highly individualized programs and services to help them meet their personal, academic, and career goals.
