Overview

The Battier Scholars Program selects outstanding future leaders from Miami, Houston and Detroit, and gives them the opportunity to improve and impact their destiny through the power of a college education.

Each Scholar receives a $20,000 scholarship ($5,000 each year for 4 years), and access to significant resources and benefits. While the financial scholarship serves as the entry point for our program, the full investment of the Battier Scholars is the creation of unique experiences, the presentation of leadership and development opportunities, the allocation of academic grants, and the formation of life-changing relationships.

Through the Battier Scholars program, Take Charge provides a comprehensive, hands-on, and unparalleled level of resources and support for these aspiring leaders, throughout their college journey and beyond.
