Give Something Back paves way for student success
Binghamton only SUNY school chosen for new program in NY
Give Back scholars at The College of New Jersey
Give Something Back is partnering with Binghamton University to support 50 Pell Grant-eligible students in pursuit of a bachelor's degree and the possibility of graduating college debt free.
More than a scholarship program, Give Something Back recruits high-need students in ninth grade and provides mentoring and skills development throughout high school to prepare them for the academic rigors of a college education. The program focuses on supporting high-achieving scholars with a special outreach to those who have experienced foster care or the incarceration of a parent.
High school student and mentor recruitment will begin this year, with enrollment of the first cohort at Binghamton expected in 2021.
