Twice the Impact
Thanks to the generosity of several donors, Clayton State is excited to announce the Retention Scholarship Challenge. All new gifts up to $20,000, designated to the Retention Scholarship Challenge received between now and June 30, 2015 will be matched, dollar for dollar, thus doubling the impact of your gifts. With the $40,000 raised as a result of this challenge, these students will be able to stay in school and accomplish their goal of graduating from college.
Facing the Challenge Head On
Financial challenges are a frequent reason our students give for not being able to complete their education. Clayton State University has made great strides in the past two years to help students move past this challenge so that they are able to graduate with a college degree – many of them the first in their family to do so. However, there are still students who need your help.
Each fall, 25-30 students end up dropping out for the semester so that they can earn enough money to pay for their education. They have exhausted their financial aid options which means that programs such as HOPE and Pell are no longer possibilities. History shows that many of these students won’t re-enroll and will never see their dream of a college degree realized.
