Every year, a number of HBCU students with only 1 or 2 semesters left, don't graduate because of small unpaid bills. The College GAP (Graduation Assistance Program) fund was established to ensure students graduate. Not to apply for a loan, scholarship or write another essay, just go to class. The criteria is they are so close to graduating in good standing, the student will just need to show up in class and the remaing tuition bill is PAID IN FULL! The purpose of the fund is providing students attending HBCUs and emergency gift to increase the number of college graduates and reducing their financial debt.
Jack and Jill Foundation will begin the pilot project with $100,000 to begin paying students tuition debt in 2019-2020. There is a goal of $2M with a collaboration with Jack and Jill of America, Inc. over a 10 year period into a scholarship endowment for students attending HBCUs.
