About Matriculate

Matriculate’s mission is to empower high-achieving high school students from low-income backgrounds to make the leap to our nation’s top colleges and universities. Our vision is that one day all the best students in America will have access to and be supported at top colleges—regardless of their income or background—which will give them a unique opportunity to change the trajectory of their lives and the lives of their families.

Matriculate empowers teams of undergraduates to provide free virtual college advising to high-achieving high school juniors and seniors from low-income backgrounds. Equipped with more than 50 hours of training, undergraduate Advising Fellows provide the information, guidance, and support that these high school students need to apply to, gain admission at, and excel in the best institutions. Matriculate is working to build an America in which all talented students have a fair shot at top colleges and universities long reserved primarily for the elite.

Matriculate is a founding partner of Bloomberg Philanthropies' college access and success initiative called CollegePoint, which aims to help as many as 65,000 students to apply to, enroll in, and graduate from the best colleges and universities.

Matriculate is committed to partnering with communities of staff, high school students, and undergraduate Advising Fellows to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization. We seek to build a team that is active in contributing to advancing and sustaining a culture in which all lived experiences are welcome.


Summer Intern

June 2020 - September 2020 New York City, NY
“I liked that I was able to get a broad range of experience in different areas of a nonprofit setting, ranging from development to operations to finance to program development and beyond. My projects included recoding a vacation day tracker spreadsheet, editing promotional videos, building resources for the high school students we serve, and more. I also liked the workplace culture which is based on feedback, employee well-being, collaboration, and learning from mistakes, among others. Given that I am involved in the nonprofit as a volunteer and as a paid student leader, I enjoyed being able to see the back-end of how the organization is run and get a novel viewpoint. Lastly, I appreciated how much my perspective and voice was valued - I was treated as part of the team and not just given menial tasks to do, but rather valuable work, and I was asked about my personal learning goals so that the internship experience could be tailored to me.”
