COMING SOON FALL 2016- New Partner Colleges
We are pleased to have partner colleges across the country that have committed to serving our Scholars. We select two and four year partner colleges that:
- Offer affordable career-ready associate and bachelor’s degrees for less than $12,500 and $25,000, respectively;
- Are focused on college completion and have a demonstrated record of graduating low-income, first generation students who have career-ready degrees that enable them to obtain employment;
- Offer academic and social support services to under-resourced students; and
- Commit to providing a designated student adviser who will provide comprehensive college counseling support to our Scholars including working with our Scholars in developing and managing to individual education plans to achieve their degrees.
We focus on affordable degrees for two reasons:
- We can help fund the education of more Dreamers; and
- We want to ensure that our Scholars have sufficient funds to cover their education so that they are not faced with working several jobs, taking on significant debt, or having to quit school because they cannot afford to complete their degree.
Note: We do not accept unsolicited requests from potential partner colleges. Instead, we do extensive outreach to civic, education, and community leaders nationally and in our states and cities of focus to better understand local needs and identify those potential partner colleges that best can best help undocumented immigrant youth complete their college degrees.
If you are interested in becoming a partner college (or want to propose a partner college), send us the college name, an email contact, and website link and we will add it to our list for consideration.
