The characters are following their dreams, holding on to their traditions and culture, and sacrificing to create a better home for themselves and their children.

The pride and joy of this community is Nina Rosario, the first to go away to college at Stanford University.

However, Nina comes home for the summer with a jarring secret: she has dropped out of school because of financial pressures.

Throughout the show, Nina struggles with her identity, her ambitions and her parents, who desperately want their child to get a good education.

The only thing in their way is money.Based on the struggles that many families face to afford college, and inspired by Nina's story in the show, In the Heights has partnered with CLEAR CHANNEL NY to create the "Graduate To New Heights Scholarship" to help a deserving student achieve their dream of higher education.

To fund the scholarship, In The Heights with CLEAR CHANNEL NY will auction five once-in-a-lifetime prize packages on a specially created website www.graduatetonewheights.com.

Each CLEAR CHANNEL NY radio station (106.7 Lite fm, 103.5 KTU, Power 105.1, Q104.3 and Z100) will hold a 2 week auction with the first auction commencing Thursday, June 18, 2009 with a prize which includes having dinner and seeing the show with In The Heights Tony Winning Composer Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Other packages will include a private salsa lesson with In The Heights Specialty Latin Dancer and Assistant Choreographer Luis Salgado; A Spa Day and Ladies Night Out package; The Perfect New York Date Package; and a package which includes a special walk-on cameo role in the Broadway show.

All proceeds from the auctions will go toward the "Graduate To New Heights Scholarship" fund, along with an additional $2500 contributed to the fund by In the Heights and CLEAR CHANNEL NY.Starting Thursday, August 27, 2009, through Wednesday, September 9, 2009, you can visit any of the CLEAR CHANNEL NY websites (1067litefm.com, ktu.com, power1051fm.com, q1043.com, z100.com) and use keyword "GRADUATE" to be considered for the scholarship, or to nominate a student.
