The “Support a Student” Program was created by Education Aid and funded by OnlineColleges.org to help economically disadvantaged students who are at risk of dropping out of school due to lack of financial support.
Many students do not receive enough financial support to complete their education goals. They must work and go to school at the same time, and cannot handle the pressure of doing both; or they simply can’t come up with enough money to pay for non-tuition related expenses such as rent, childcare, and groceries while going to school.
It is the goal of the program to change the lives of students around the country by providing them with financial support they need to complete their education. Learn more at the Education Aid Web site.
The mission of Online Colleges.org is to help people further their education and career goals. The Web site connects prospective students directly to accredited colleges and universities. By partnering with Education Aid, Online Colleges.org is able to further this mission, by financially supporting a student who is working towards a college degree.
