Changing Lives Through Transfer Opportunities

The Kaplan Educational Foundation helps to eliminate barriers to education for overlooked and underserved students and develop them as leaders in the workforce and community. The Foundation’s Kaplan Leadership Program is a unique and trailblazing model that addresses the needs of the ”whole” student for low-income, high-potential community college students.

The Kaplan Educational Foundation’s Leadership Program facilitates the successful transfer of low-income African American, Latino, and Native American students of exceptional academic merit from New York City’s community colleges to top 4-year universities throughout the country. The program prepares 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 Kaplan Educational Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit public charity initially established and supported by a generous endowment funded by Kaplan executives with the idea of helping a small group of students in a big way. Kaplan and its employees continue to provide financial, in-kind, and volunteer support to the Kaplan Education Foundation and our Kaplan Scholars.

CSR Award for Philanthropy

In 2017, the Kaplan Educational Foundation’s Executive Director Nancy Lee Sánchez accepted City and State Magazine’s 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

The Foundation developed 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 nontraditional applicants like veterans, DACA/undocumented students, and students raising families. You can purchase the latest edition of the guide, as well as an instructor’s edition.
