PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS SCHOLARSHIP & LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

CVEP Pathways to Success is changing the culture of college going by offering sizeable scholarships to Coachella Valley undergraduate students (like you) with demonstrated financial need who wish to complete a college degree.  If awarded a scholarship you will be linked to a wide variety of student support systems designed to help you succeed in college and your professional career.

Our goal at Pathways to Success is to provide the financial resources and student support services to students who have clear career goals, students who have demonstrated leadership or involvement in their community or school, and students who have the desire and motivation to succeed.  Our GPA requirements for eligibility are broad.  We require a 2.0 GPA or above for first and second year college students, and a 2.5 GPA or above for third and fourth year college students.  We fully recognize that your GPA should not be the sole determining factor in your ability to attend and succeed in college.  But, we also recognize that you may need additional help, advising and academic assistance once you are in college. 

For that reason, if awarded you will be linked to Pathways to Success support services that provide workshops on college readiness and financial management, training in how to navigate your way through college, training in core study skills, and one-on-one counseling.  In addition, you will be included in CVEP's Pathways to Success Leadership program, which is designed to help you develop your full potential in college and cultivate the skills essential for your success as a professional.

Scholarship awards may be used to cover your tuition, books, and living expenses while attending college.
