Pathways to Excellence (PTE):


 Empower Black & Brown Dreams: Bridge the Gap to Higher Education.

Whether you’re a high school senior, a recent graduate, or already navigating your college journey, we’re here to remove financial, social, and mental barriers so you can focus on achieving your dreams.

Our Promise:

  • Financial Support: We cover tuition, fees, books, meals, housing, and travel costs, tailored to your needs.
  • Mentorship and Guidance: Connect with experienced mentors and advisors who understand your unique challenges and aspirations.
  • Community and Belonging: Find a supportive network of peers and alumni who are here to cheer you on every step of the way.

The PTE Program offers two avenues of support

Students receive one-time scholarships, academic resources, and mentorship to start and complete post-secondary education.​

The Bridge to Destiny Fund:

  • Are you a New York college student in need of a little extra financial boost?
  • Receive a one-time grant of up to $4000, potentially renewable each year.
  • Access additional financial and non-financial support throughout the year.

Through the DAP, we facilitate full or partial third-party sponsorship of a student’s tuition or room and board costs.

The Destiny Adoption Project:

  • Need comprehensive, long-term financial assistance?
  • Get matched with a sponsor who commits to covering your tuition and/or other expenses for at least two semesters.
  • Shine on our website as a featured student ready for “adoption.”
