rootEd Community College Transfer Scholarship

rootEd Alliance launched in 2018 to address the most challenging obstacles to success after high school for students in rural America with advice, exposure and access to financial resources. The mission of rootEd Alliance is to clear a path to a stronger future for students in rural America.
