Transfer Changes Lives

The Kaplan Educational Foundation (KEF) eliminates barriers to education for overlooked and underserved students and develops them as leaders for the American workforce and their communities. Its Kaplan Leadership Program (KLP) is a unique and trailblazing model that addresses the needs of the ‘whole’ student for low-income, high-potential community college students.

KLP successfully transfers low-income Black, Latino and Native American students of exceptional academic merit from New York City’s community colleges to top four-year universities throughout the country, while preparing them to succeed academically and assume leadership roles in their professions and communities. Our Kaplan Scholars receive a comprehensive array of financial and academic support, transfer admissions advising and leadership skills development.

The KEF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit public charity initially established and supported by a generous endowment funded by Kaplan, Inc. executives with the idea of helping a small group of students in a big way. Kaplan, Inc. and its employees continue to provide financial, in-kind and volunteer support to KEF and our Kaplan Scholars.

CSR Award for Philanthropy

In 2017, the Kaplan Educational Foundation’s Executive Director Nancy Lee Sánchez accepted City and State’s 2017 CSR Award for Philanthropy on behalf of Kaplan and its employees for their support of the Foundation’s work. The award recognizes individuals and organizations that donate funds, time, and resources to charitable initiatives and the greater good.

Your Guide to College Transfer

Also in 2017, the Foundation developed the first edition of the Your Guide to College Transfer series, which provides transfer admissions and financial aid information on the top colleges and universities for transfer students across the United States. The guide also includes comprehensive advice on navigating the entire transfer process, from application to enrollment, with additional specialized information for non-traditional applicants like veterans, DACA/undocumented students, and students raising families. In 2018, the Guide received a second edition, as well as an instructor’s edition.
