Zeke is an extraordinary student with dreams of serving his city as Mayor. Help Greenhouse support him as he earns his college diploma.

Zeke is a sophomore at the University of Denver, and a graduate of the Denver School of Science and Technology. He loves his city and wishes to serve as Mayor one day. A recent class at DU led by former Governor of Colorado Richard Lamm further spurred his political interests and led to a position as a volunteer aide in the Colorado State Senate and an internship with Greenhouse Scholars Summer Symposium Speaker, State Senator Mike Johnston. Zeke has been successful in a wide variety of fields, including working for ABC during the Democratic National Convention and attending a hands-on summer research program at the University of Wyoming.

Zeke’s goals are only limited by his finances. Zeke is also a Greenhouse Scholar. Greenhouse Scholars provides comprehensive personal and financial support to high-performing, under-resourced college students.

YOUR SUPPORT ENABLES
Your support of Greenhouse Scholars will enable us to continue to support Zeke and students like him.

78% of our scholars are first-generation college students and have an average family income of just $28,705.

Greenhouse Scholars uses a Whole Person approach to offer intellectual, academic, personal, professional and financial support to high-achieving, under-resourced college students. Support includes one-on-one mentorship, access to a vast professional network, assistance in securing internships, an annual three-day leadership training symposium, and peer support, in addition to financial grants. While the average GPA of first-generation college students is a 2.6 (with a 2.8 for all students), Greenhouse Scholars average a 3.4 GPA.

Our network of support services means the day our Greenhouse Scholars leave college, they’ll be prepared to succeed in their professional endeavors and make significant contributions in their communities.
