Brown University (College Advising Corps)

Program Description

The goal of the College Advising Corps initiative is to increase the number of low- to moderate-income high school students who enter college and earn bachelor's degrees, by providing college admission and financial aid guidance to those students and their families. Full-Time College Guides will work collaboratively with guidance staff, principals, teachers, and others at partner schools to increase the awareness, preparation, and college-going disposition of underserved students. They will provide onsite advising and information about college, the application process, and financial aid; organize workshops and programming for students and their families; provide individualized support with college and financial aid applications; and track the progress of college-bound students.
