YOUR INVESTMENT IN LOW-INCOME AND FIRST-GENERATION STUDENTS MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone and it has been particularly challenging for low-income college and college-bound students. Media is full of stories about low-income students who have delayed or dropped out of college. While CV students face many of the same challenges including loss of housing, umemployment, food insecurity, illness, and increased family responsibilities, they are continuing to enroll and persist in college at high rates. Now, more than ever, RI students need the essential resources and support by College Visions and their communities.
With your investment, we will continue to instill hope in our students and build the highly educated and
diverse workforce that benefits all Rhode Islanders!
Return on Investment
College Visions' strong emphasis on financial aid and affordability pays dividends for our students and generates an exceptional return on investment. The total cost for a student to participate in our program from 12th grade through college graduation is $10,000 (CAP + CSP). During that timespan, each College Visions student secures an average of $90,000 in grants and scholarships.
"College Visions is an amazing opportunity and really helps a lot of first-generation students like me think and learn about college. With CV, I was able to apply to schools that I had never thought about and I was able to complete everything on time or earlier thanks to my advisor. Your gifts and continued support helps this amazing organization to keep running. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
