New collaboration will integrate UStrive into student offerings to better support underserved high school students, as the pandemic drives unprecedented interest in virtual mentoring
Strive for College, a nonprofit organization that provides free online mentoring services for college-bound students, announced that they are collaborating with the College Board and Common App to help low-income high school students navigate through the college admissions process during the pandemic.
In order for high schoolers to be eligible for Strive for College’s virtual mentoring program in collaboration with the College Board and Common App, they have to be seniors who have either taken the PSAT or the SAT or have participated in an AP course. All the students accepted into this program will have access to a mentor who will help them search for colleges, apply for admissions, and get financial aid.
Strive for College and the College Board have also created guides that attempt to answer common questions and concerns that many college-bound students have concerning the college process and COVID-19. Their guides are based on the insights they received from this past spring and summer.
