Our Work

Current Initiatives

CAPS Scholarship is a joint initiative between Carolina Youth Coalition (Charlotte, North Carolina), College AIM (Atlanta, Georgia), and The Merancas Foundation which provides last-dollar scholarship and emergency funds to under-resourced students who demonstrate a financial need. Beyond the cost of tuition, this program gives students an extra layer of support with funding for college access programs, coaching, and mentoring.  Please refer to the following website to learn more about this program: capsscholarship.org

This experience is designed to give students the opportunity to learn about the funding, programmatic, and administrative aspects of nonprofit organizations. During the paid internship, time will be allocated equally between The Merancas Foundation’s office and two of our nonprofit partner organizations. We are collaborating with Johnson C. Smith University to recruit students. Please contact the Foundation’s office directly to learn more: [email protected]
