    Data Time Period

    Benchmark for Scoring
    Impact scores of postsecondary scholarship programs are based on income generated relative to cost. Programs receive an Impact score of 100 if they increase income for a recipient by more than $1.25 for every $1 spent and a score of 80 if income increases by more than $0.80 for every $1 spent. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the benchmark for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 65. This program increases income for a scholarship recipient by more than $1.25 for every $1 spent.
    Methodology
    This impact score was determined through the Postsecondary Scholarships methodology which is fully detailed in the Charity Navigator Guide to Ratings. Analysis conducted in 2024 by Charity Navigator using data submitted by the nonprofit, theory and evidence from scientific research studies, and public datasets.
    Data Source
    The nonprofit submitted data on the dollar value of all scholarships it grants and the number of scholarship recipients, which we use to calculate the additional income that the nonprofit's scholarship program generates.
