Vermont Student Assistance Corporation
Commission AmeriCorps State Competitive Planning Grants FY 2011
Low-income Vermonters lack the support, academic preparation and information to attend college at the same rate as their higher income peers. Veterans rarely complete a postsecondary degree. The Vermont Student Assistance Corporation will design and develop a program to provide college access services to vulnerable families in communities with the lowest academic, aspiration and postsecondary continuation rates to increase enrollment and success. Services will include mentoring, tutoring, career and postsecondary enrollment planning.
