UNC College Advising Corps gets funding

From the UNCGAA

A UNC program that helps North Carolina high school seniors realize the goal of attending college is expanding with help from a national foundation based in Jacksonville, Fla.

The Jessie Ball duPont Fund has created a matching-grant program that will provide up to $210,000 to support new and existing partner high schools in the Carolina College Advising Corps.

The Carolina College Advising Corps, or CCAC, is two years old and helps low-income, first-generation and underrepresented students in North Carolina attend college. It is a constituent program of the National College Advising Corps, which is headquartered at UNC. The CCAC places recent Carolina alumni – many of them first-generation college students themselves – as college advisers in low-income high schools across the state.
