At the Short List, one of our motivating beliefs is the importance of giving back to the community. The Short List College Fund Program, a non-profit extension of our organization, helps students minimize the financial challenges involved in researching schools, putting together a focused strategy, and locating scholarship money, grants, financial aid, and college work-study.

We also provide pro bono services to inner-city public schools throughout the year.

In many cases, the students who receive this assistance may be the first generation in their family to go to college, and they often have little understanding of what the college admissions process involves or how to compete successfully in the college environment. The Short List College Fund Program helps to pay their application and test-taking fees, college visit expenses, and all four years of college textbook expenses. We also stay in touch with our students beyond high school and help many with graduate school or career placement.

The Short List College Fund Program opens up opportunities for many students and families who would otherwise find it difficult to afford college, position themselves competitively, or succeed once they enter college. This vital program is supported by tax deductible contributions from individuals, families, and organizations that share our commitment to reaching out and enriching the lives of young adults through education.

“I got accepted to Brown and their financial aid package was really great! It consists of grants, scholarships, and $1500 in work-study. They offered me a financial aid of $50,000 and I only have to pay $2,000. I sent back my confirmation to attend in the fall!”


“I got accepted into Washington and Lee, and they are giving me $40,000 a year! I am still in shock!”
