Title: Leatherstocking Tales: Partnering to Build College Success for Underserved Youth


Description: Access to college for many students in the Leatherstocking region of central New York State was a locked door with seemingly insurmountable obstacles placed in their path. When scholarship money became available for graduating seniors, too many students never made it to that level. The Clark Foundation recognized the need to intervene early to prevent students from “dropping out.” Thus, the partnership between the scholarship provider and college readiness organization was created 25 years ago.
 
In 2016, 99% of grade 12 students in the program graduated from high school, and 86% of these graduates will be heading off to college.Learn how the Clark Scholarship Foundation and College For Every Student have created a national model for helping students get to college and attain degrees.
