Finalizing the HEAR Class of 2027 was incredibly difficult this year. The Foundation was inundated with many outstanding applications. The interview process was particularly challenging as there were so many worthy recipients. We are grateful to everyone who took the time to complete the application to become part of this year’s class and we wish everyone a successful college journey! 

We are delighted to welcome the 25 students who make up the HEAR Class of 2027 into the HEAR Family of scholars this coming fall. These inspiring young men and women are destined for great things. We are excited to begin supporting them throughout their college career.

We look forward to sharing more information with you soon!

HEAR Mentoring

Mentoring is an essential part of our program. HEAR pairs every new Scholar with an adult mentor.

They serve as guides to our under-resourced and often first-generation scholars throughout their college careers.

 

Mentoring is well-documented as being key to ensure college perseverance and completion. Become a mentor for one of our future scholars and feel a sense of satisfaction knowing you personally made a difference in someone’s life. If you, or anyone you know, are interested in learning more about becoming a mentor, please contact us at info@hearfoundation.org.
