Your Support Matters

Partner with Us

We offer student scholarship writing support & staff development, at your school or organization.
Our goal is to support high schools and college prep programs in helping their students become more competitive college candidates and securing scholarships for college.

Sponsor a Scholarship Club

Through Scholarship Clubs we are able to help students in under-resourced schools excel in college, without economic burdens.
We’ve helped students from low-income households secure over $1.5 Million in scholarships and gain admission to some of the top universities in the country! Four of our scholarship club students were awarded the Gates Millennium Scholarship – that covers education costs through graduate school!

Champion Our Cause

When you become a Capture Greatness Champion your contribution goes directly to helping a student fund their future.
We know student success is a team sport. That’s why we raise money to provide our services at no/low cost to students from low-income households & under-resourced schools.
JustinAfter Ms. Rowe came she made me realize that all of my essays had to tell a story in order to make it interesting for anyone that read it. I would recommend Ms. Rowe to any and every school because she really inspired me to turn my boring essays into compelling essays that stood out among 52,000 applicants. – Justin P.,  Gates Millennium Scholarship Winner
SeglindaHMy GPA was a 3.0. My SAT & ACT scores were mediocre. However, I got into all five schools I applied to!! My essay set me apart from the thousands of other students that applied to those schools. I have always been a creative writer! With the help of Capture Greatness, I became more confident in my writing.  – Seglinda H.,  Attending Kutztown University
KamriI have always been a talented writer. In the past my work has won first place in essay contests and I always received an A on my research papers. Despite how talented I thought I was, Ms. Rowe made me a better writer. Having Ms. Rowe coach my writing was an amazing experience. She pushed me to be creative with my work and always made herself available to help me. The best part about working with Ms. Rowe is . . . Having someone who cares push me to produce some of my best work.” – Kamri S.,  Gates Millennium Scholarship Winner
Jeff-Jones-Headshot1The coaching has been seen in various intangible ways, such as providing my daughter with a positive role model/mentor. It has also increased in her writing skills and she has applied to more colleges then she originally stated that she would since she’s now more comfortable with writing essays. Kayla received more acceptance letters than she expected and over and beyond that my daughter’s whole outlook on life has been positively impacted by the coaching received from Capturing Greatness. – Jeff Jones, Parent of Capture Greatness! participant
R.FurchellBefore coaching, I was lost and didn’t know where to start when picking a topic to write about. It was easier thanks to the talking and pulling out of me what was deep inside. My final essay was really about me and was well written and different from others because it was my personal story. The best part about working with Ms. Rowe is that she can relate to you. She was just like us at one point. She is loving, caring and nurturing. – Rydia F., Attending Rosemont College
D.BanksBefore Capture Greatness coaching I was very uneasy about how I was going to come up with a college essay. After coaching, I felt confident that my essay was strong and could open doors for me. I feel like my essay helped to bring my personality into my college acceptance process. It captured my motivations, goals, and leadership skills. I was accepted into a lot of schools on the strength of my essay. I ranked #8 in my class and I got into schools that others (who ranked higher than me) couldn’t get into. – Diamond B., Attending Temple University & Earned $26,000 in scholarship money.
