Take Stock in College

The Take Stock in College program provides postsecondary completion and degree attainment support services each year for more than 6,000 Take Stock scholars enrolled at one of Florida's 40 public colleges and universities. Postsecondary degree attainment is the goal for every Take Stock College scholar. The college program is part of Take Stock's continuum-of-care support model for its first-generation students as they continue their educational pathway to degree attainment or certification. The program was developed in response to research that students in poverty are often ill-prepared for college and less likely to both pursue and complete a degree. The model provides scholars with the support needed to help them navigate college, problem-solve issues when they arise, and help develop life skills that will become increasingly important as they transition to working professionals. The Take Stock in College program helps ensure student scholars successfully use their Take Stock scholarship and delivers on our most basic promise, helping our scholars succeed in College, Career, and life.
