As part of our mission to develop servant leaders for the home, church and world, Grace University has developed a partnership with College Possible to serve low-income students in our community.
College Possible is a national nonprofit organization making college admission and success possible for low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support. Mentors guide high school students as they prepare for college during weekly sessions throughout their junior and senior years. The program leads students through the college application process, financial aid and scholarship forms, and the transition to college. Coaching continues during college and students are mentored in study skills, financial literacy, and job acquisition.
“Grace University is dedicated to ensuring financial obstacles do not keep deserving students from reaching God’s plan for their lives,” said David Barnes, Ed.D., president of Grace University. “Our partnership with College Possible will help remove barriers for students seeking biblically based Christ-centered education.”
There are more than 250 College Possible students currently in Omaha making progress toward earning their degrees. Grace University is excited to join the nine other colleges in the Midwest partnering with College Possible to serve deserving students.
Grace University, located in Omaha, Neb., is an accredited, private Christian university offering 20 academic programs with 40 diverse areas of study for undergraduate, graduate and adult degree completion students including education, business, psychology, music, communication studies, nursing and Christian ministries. The university’s mission is to develop servant leaders for the home, the church and the world through excellence in biblically integrated education.
