College Now of Greater Cleveland
Welcome to College Now (formerly Cleveland Scholarship Programs), where for more than 40 years, our goal has been to help students pursue educational opportunities that empower them to embark on rewarding careers and strengthen our community. We provide Greater Cleveland students with guidance and access to funds to prepare for and graduate from college. College Now is the only college access and success organization with advisors staffed in Greater Cleveland schools throughout the academic year. Serving approximately 20,000 annually, our students are nearly twice as likely to graduate from college as other low-income college students.
Our mission is to increase college attainment through college access and success advising, financial aid counseling, and scholarship services.
To achieve our mission, we provide guidance and resources to high school students and adult learners to prepare for educational opportunities after high school; work 1:1 and in groups with students and families to secure financial aid; and offset the cost of college tuition by awarding renewable, need-based, last-dollar scholarships to students across Greater Cleveland.
