Title:Low-income students and college success: More than money
Organization:Indiana Youth Institute
Short Description:While low-income students need enough money to attend college, money alone is not enough. In addition to support services provided by colleges and universities, parents and community organizations can make a real difference in helping low-income college students persevere and earn the college diploma needed to find a good paying job.
Annotation:Low-income students, even those who are successful academically, often face the greatest challenges in earning a college degree. Not all of those challenges are financial. While low-income students need enough money to attend college, money alone is not enough. In addition to support services provided by colleges and universities, parents and community organizations can make a real difference in helping low-income college students persevere and earn the college diploma needed to find a good paying job.
