Scholars Latino Initiative (SLI) is a Harrisonburg-based nonprofit that partners with high schools in Harrisonburg, Richmond, and Winchester to provide academic support systems, leadership development, and mentorships for Latino students with the ultimate goal of college attendance. They also provide scholarships and financial aid for dual-enrollment classes for college credit, computers and technology needed for success, and tuition assistance.
Since 2012, SLI has served 181 scholars who have attended 24 different colleges and universities and awarded more than $542,000 in financial support.
