WHO WE ARE
LONG ISLAND SCHOLARS is an educational nonprofit [501(c)(3)] which helps motivated young people prepare for and access educational opportunities—whatever their circumstances.
We support public high school students from lower-income families in Nassau and Suffolk Counties in college and career readiness, access, and success. We provide free, individualized consulting, helping students develop their academic skills and discover extracurricular activities in their areas of interest, and mentoring them through application processes for competitions, summer programs, college admissions, scholarships, and the like.
Our programs are free to eligible public school sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have an unweighted GPA of 3.3 and an EFC of $20,000 or less (per FAFSA--we can help you figure this part out).
Many of LONG ISLAND SCHOLARS' programs are offered in partnership with GPS ACADEMY GREAT NECK, a private global educational consulting and college preparatory firm.
