EVERY STUDENT DESERVES THE

OPPORTUNITY TO EARN A DEGREE

College Material? Absolutely.

OneGoal Fellows are proving that college graduation isn’t a privilege reserved for the few. They are redefining what it means to be “college material.”

We do not have a specific candidate profile for Fellows. We don’t admit students based on high academic performance. Instead, we prioritize students who show potential and commitment to college, but whose college prospects, without intervention, would be extremely limited. OneGoal Fellows are the students who are often overlooked by other interventions.
