Allow Matriculate to continue providing virtual advising to low-income high school students across the country

Posted April 3, 2020

Matriculate is a national education organization whose mission is to empower high-achieving, low-income high school students to make the leap to our best colleges.To do this, and to close a national gap in college advising, Matriculate recruits, selects, and rigorously trains mission-driven, undergraduate college students at leading institutions (Columbia/Barnard, Emory, Princeton, Notre Dame, UC- Berkeley, Williams, Stanford, Yale, among others) to serve as virtual college advisors. The global pandemic and the economic destruction it is causing create major challenges that threaten these programs. We seek assistance applying for loans under the CARES Act, so that we can continue to fund our operations and pursue our work this year.

Matriculate

Matriculate is a national nonprofit whose mission is to empower high-achieving, low-income high school students to make the leap to our best colleges. When low-income, high-achievers do apply to these schools, they are accepted, enroll, and graduate at the same rates as their more affluent peers. In this environment, low-income, high-achieving students’ records and accomplishments mirror those of higher-income students, with negligible rates of loan default.
