  • Clarify pathways for students into career areas
  • Include parents and students as stakeholders
  • Collaborate with the larger community
  • Enhance educational opportunities for all students.

STAR -  Stand Tall And Reach


The STAR scholarship program recognizes outstanding black and African American students with certificates and scholarships of $50 and $1000 dollars. Chosen by College and community leaders, the STAR applicants are evaluated on the basis of their grade-point averages, community service, and interviews.

The STAR Scholarship Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) foundation that was started and initially funded in 1992 by Paul Peck.  STAR is all volunteer and over 98% of all money goes to scholarships. Peck has extended STAR into Washington DC; Oakland, CA; Richmond, VA; and Arlington County, VA. To date, the STAR Scholarship Foundation has awarded over $1.01 million in merit scholarships and merit awards.
