The mission of WithinReach is to provide financial and academic support to deserving and economically disadvantaged students who have passed the High School Equivalency exam and are preparing to enter college. Through the provision of scholarships to cover the full cost of college tuition, WithinReach aims to alleviate much of the financial strain associated with higher education that deters many eligible and deserving students from ever submitting an admissions application. WithinReach will also establish a community of student learners, led by our scholarship recipients, for the purposes of peer mentoring and networking.
Adult learners are brave, dedicated, committed, and underserved. They have worked hard to earn their diplomas, but in today’s society, a high school equivalency diploma is not enough. Our students deserve a fighting chance. We hope to help put college, and a better future for them and their families, WithinReach.
