In Our World...

StudentsOur interest in science and math is consistently nurtured. We are encouraged to explore our creativity and innovativeness. Our intellectual curiosity is valued. We ALL graduate from high school and college. We are successful scientists, engineers or professionals with STEM backgrounds poised to lead our country. There are no achievement or opportunity gaps.
GSP has closed the achievement gap. You read it right! ALL of our students graduate from high school. GSP sends 100% of those who successfully complete the program to college. 90% graduate from college in 4 years. 60% with Bachelors degrees in STEM-related fields, which is 8x the national average for African American students.

Welcome to the world as seen through our eyes. Welcome to Greene Scholars!

Through strategic partnerships or sponsorships, we encourage our global community of corporations, foundations and individual donors to support the GSP mission.



GSP thrives from the expertise and contributions of our volunteers. Whether as a science fair judge or career fair interviewer, volunteers are the backbone of our Program.
