Creating a Safety Net to Increase College Completion

  • Description

This GrantCraft case study, developed for Candid's Scholarships for Change portal (scholarshipsforchange.org), explores Ascendium Education Group's emergency grant program that helps students complete college. With five decades of experience providing student loans, Ascendium launched its philanthropy program designed to increase college access and completion for low-income populations and underrepresented groups. The case study explores how Ascendium implemented and scaled their direct support.
