Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We are looking to identify students living with HIV who have the potential to achieve success in their own unique way. Once we identify and select those Scholars, we aim to work with each Scholar for at least two years of their educational career and have resources readily available for their tuition, fees, and other educational needs.

We develop an extensive scholarship application and make it readily available for all students living with HIV in the United States. The Founder/CEO, Board of Directors, and Advisory Board Members then partake in a thorough review process with multiple stages and multiple scholarship review meetings to ensure the highest qualified applicants become HIV League Scholars.

The Founder/CEO, Board of Directors, and Advisory Board members all have different personal and professional backgrounds that make it possible for the application development and application review process to succeed.

We have already awarded two $7,000 scholarships before our two-year mark. We know we are making progress if each following application round contains more applicants and more available scholarships.

We have gone through the entire process of raising the funds for two $7,000 HIV League Scholarships, released the application, and gone through the application review process.

What we haven't done is build upon that process to reach more students living with HIV throughout the entire nation, but we are currently in that process.
