$450 in scholarships are offered to RockinghamCounty students for every $1 invested

RCEF and generous donors ensure a trained member of the Carolina College Advising Corps is working in every high school in Rockingham County. This program is probably one of the best investments you can make in advancing college opportunities for young people in Rockingham County.

 

With a focus on low income, underrepresented students, college advisors provide one-on-one assistance to high school seniors in navigating the complex process of preparing for the SATs and making applications to 2-year and 4-year programs. Many first generation college students are a direct result of the work the college advisors are doing in local schools. 

Since 2014, more than 2,000 Rockingham County students report submitting at least one college application and more than $30 million in scholarships have been offered to seniors since 2013 through the College Advising programs - that's a $450 return for every $1 invested in the program.

To learn more about the program or if you want to guarantee your high school student has access to a college advisor, contact us!
