How We Can Help You
In addition to financial assistance, all Worthington Scholars are assigned a support staff person to follow them through their entire college career. WSF program staff begin meeting with students during the summer after their high school graduation to analyze financial aid award letters, assist with registering for their WorthingtonConnect account and discuss their college goals and first year plan. We continue this role through their entire college experience. This long-term relationship with scholars is meant to ensure support through any potential barriers to earning a college degree, including help directing to appropriate on campus supports with issues such as financial aid, changing majors, transferring schools, and academic and personal difficulties. WSF program staff will communicate with scholars via phone, video chats and text, visit college campuses when health and safety procedures allow and plan events to enhance student success.
WSF plans to expand to additional counties in coming years.
