Sisters Scholars

Helping students grow and reach their goals

Achieve a Better and Brighter Future


We believe everyone deserve access to a quality education to achieve a better and brighter future. Ursuline Sisters Scholars is a ministry of Beatitude House that helps college students from low-income families achieve their academic aspirations through mentorship and financial assistance for school-related living expenses.  Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty through education and help underprivileged adults overcome everyday challenges.

One-on-One Mentoring

Mentors are vital to an individual’s success. Our mentors volunteer time to provide help, stability and guidance for students eager to achieve their goals and graduate from college or vocational school.
