Be The Change Fund

Although a grant of any kind can mean the difference between enrollment or dropping out for any student in need, this fund focuses on specific grants often referred to as “retention grants,” “completion grants,” or sometimes “gap grants”—programs specifically designed to target students who: Have genuine unmet financial need and have used all other sources of aid; Are on track for graduation in the next semester or year; and Have an outstanding financial gap that will require them to drop out.
