On behalf of PeerForward, we are excited to announce that we have received $50,000 to provide emergency funding to any College Summit/PeerForward alumni graduating with an undergraduate degree between December 2022 – May 2023.
This fund is available to former Peer Leaders or students who graduated from a PeerForward high school. It is intended to provide upcoming graduates with financial assistance to cover last-minute costs such as tuition, account holds, books, graduation fees, registration costs, supplies, etc. To apply, please email Managing Director of Operations, Renee Tribbett, at email@example.com.
To be eligible, applicants must be on track to earn an Associate or Bachelor’s degree as early as December 2022 and no later than May 2023.
