A Commitment to Student Success and Affordability
Preparing the talent that powers our economy by cultivating strong cross-sector partnerships to help advance equity, expand opportunities, and increase educational attainment.
With the help of our generous donors, we offer scholarship funds to students enrolled at any one of our 14 universities to bridge the gap between the cost of a degree and the financial resources available to our students. We are focused on improving our student’s ability to persist and complete their education with a conferred degree.
Although the reasons students drop out of university are multi-dimensional, the barriers to completion are often related to financial pressures rather than academic inability. We offer small grants to struggling students resulting in those students staying in college, graduating, and entering the workforce.
Transforming decision-making by meeting PASSHE students where they are and supporting change through a comprehensive Motivational Interviewing training framework that nurtures intrinsic motivation and form meaningful relationships with the students they serve.
