Effort Seeks to Help Low-Income Get Into College
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A coalition of college access service providers, philanthropic and business leaders in the St. Louis region is seeking to get more low-income students into college.
Details of the plan developed by the St. Louis Regional College Access Pipeline were announced Thursday. The goal is to increase the percentage of adults with post-secondary degrees to 50 percent by 2020, with the focus on getting more low-income and first-generation students into college.
The plan seeks to help students be better prepared academically and to have better access to financial resources. Funding for the project is provided by a grant from TG Public Benefit Grant Program.
