Program Description

COMPASS Guide is the Milwaukee area's premier college access destination. We have several free resources to help students, their families and their support networks plan and pay for college.

One of our most used tools is our scholarship database, which features more than 700 LOCAL scholarships worth more than $4 million annually.

It's never too early to start thinking about college. Use COMPASS Guide's timeline to make sure you're on the right path. Take advantage of our partnerships with WisCareers and KnowHow2GoWisconsin to prepare yourself for free.

COMPASS Guide's pre-college advisers are available to groups for presentations on college-related issues ranging from the scholarship search to finding the right college.
