To Reach Into the Underrepresented to Mentor and Provide Hope
To Reach Into the Underrepresented to Mentor and Provide Hope (T.R.I.U.M.P.H.) is scholarship fund that was founded in 2011 by Racheida Lewis and Ashley Jackson during their term as President and Vice President (respectively) of the National Society of Black Engineers at Virginia Commonwealth University (NSBE @ VCU). This scholarship was founded with the purpose of financially supporting high school seniors in the Richmond community as well as recognizing hardworking students at VCU.
The Founders decided to expand T.R.I.U.M.P.H. beyond monetary support and work towards S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education and awareness and preparing youth for higher education. Various programs and workshops will be implemented to explore the realms of STEM and provide various information and resources regarding the application process for college, personal statements, and major scholarships.
