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.
