Help students achieve their dream by donating to our scholarship fund. The Rashema Melson Scholarship Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides college scholarships to students in need in southeast Washington, DC, to schools around the country. As a homeless young woman in Washington, DC, our founder Rashema Melson received a full scholarship to Georgetown from an anonymous sponsor. Her life changed in many ways, but she felt guilty about receiving all this attention when many other students were facing similar problems. As the donations keep coming in, Rashema is looking to pay it forward and pass this gift on to others in need.
