CHANGING LIVES THROUGH EDUCATION

New Jersey SEEDS changes the lives of motivated, high-achieving students from low-income families by transforming their educational opportunities.

Since the organization’s inception in 1992, SEEDS ensures that its students have the knowledge, skills, access and support to thrive in far more challenging school environments than those from which they come. SEEDS then places its students at selective day and boarding schools or colleges and universities across the country with substantial financial aid packages.
