United Way Supports Wesleyan’s Program for College Success

Middlesex United Way awarded Wesleyan’s Program for Student College Success with a $5,000 grant. The award will support the program through Aug. 31, 2013.

Wesleyan’s Program for College Success is a comprehensive program that supports first-generation, low-income and underrepresented students as they move through high school and into college. The program serves 100 high school students (25 in each class), helping them to make a successful transition to college. Led by a director and operated by college students and recent graduates, the program consists of a four-week summer session and 40 weeks of programming throughout the academic year. Wesleyan students will offer tutoring and other academic support as needed.
