Students Rising Above

Students Rising Above (SRA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization supporting and empowering low-income, first-generation students to access and obtain post-secondary education and secure career-ladder jobs, fueling a diverse and inclusive workforce and thriving economy. Every year, Students Rising Above accepts applications from Bay Area High School seniors who are interested in becoming SRA scholars. We select students who demonstrate drive and potential, and provide them with the expertise, tools, and resources they will need to overcome life’s most challenging obstacles and reach their goals in gaining a postsecondary education.
