“Stars are the sky’s diamonds.”
– Matshona Dhliwayo

Each year the Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation awards approximately $100,000 in scholarships to our stars: adult women who dream of earning a college degree. One-third of the funding for scholarships comes from our signature fundraising event, Rising Stars.

Since its inception in 1996, Fresh Start’s legacy has been to tip the scales in favor of adult women joining the ranks of college graduates by providing scholarships and mentoring assistance. Imagine the impact you and your company can have as a 2020 Rising Stars sponsor! You will be showcasing your commitment to the community and assisting Fresh Start in generating the necessary funds to support current and future scholars.
