The cost of college is the most significant barrier that prevents students from earning a college degree, and the financial aid process can be especially challenging for first-generation college students. That’s why Breakthrough Atlanta is partnering with The Scholarship Academy, a comprehensive scholarship preparatory program that teaches low-income, first generation college students to navigate the maze of financial aid in order to fund their college education.

Through this partnership, Breakthrough will equip our students and their families with the knowledge and resources necessary to secure scholarships and navigate the financial aid application process – ensuring that finances don’t stand in the way of achieving their full potential.
