Power of YOU


POY Mission

The mission of the Power of YOU program is to expand college access, improve student performance and close achievement gaps.

What is the Power of YOU?

The Power of YOU is an academic support and scholarship program that provides individual student advising, community, and financial support to students in need. If your grants don’t cover your tuition, Power of YOU pays the rest for you. We pair you with an College Navigator who will help you navigate college life. Our College Navigators have low caseloads which allows them to give individualized support. We also support students with funding for purchasing textbooks, leasing a laptop, and obtaining a bus pass as needed.

Am I Eligible to Apply?

Power of YOU is for recent high school graduates.  Applicants need to have graduated from high school no more than two semesters before starting Power of YOU and cannot have attended another college after high school. This means if you want to start in Fall 2022, you must have graduated high school between  June 2021 and June 2022.
