"Each Scholar who joins our organization is selected based on incredible academic achievements, demonstrated leadership skills, and a commitment to bettering their communities-despite being from under-resourced backgrounds," said Pete Burridge, Greenhouse Scholars CEO and president. "Since Greenhouse Scholars expanded to Illinois in 2012, we have more than doubled our program and our community, thanks to RMB Capital's support. We look forward to raising a glass in their honor."

Founded in 2005, Greenhouse Scholars is an education non-profit organization providing comprehensive support for high-performing and under-resourced students from Illinois and Colorado. Through its "Whole Person" approach of intellectual, academic, financial and professional support, Greenhouse Scholars is committed to cultivating the next generation of community leaders.

Becoming a Greenhouse Scholar is a highly selective process. These students are from the most under-resourced communities: 72 percent of Scholars are the first in their families to attend college, and 40 percent of their families live below the poverty line. Yet they demonstrate extraordinary potential and make giving back to the community a priority: 71 percent of Scholars lead an organization on campus, 55 percent have founded an organization, event or club and more than 2,000 middle and high school students have been mentored by Scholars to date. Since 2005, Greenhouse Scholars has served nearly 150 students.
