PUPP provides each scholar with comprehensive college counseling, college tours and mentoring so that they are able to identify colleges that fit their needs. As a result, PUPP Scholars have enrolled and been academically successful at some of our nation’s top colleges and universities. Most scholars receive significant financial aid packages and supports from their undergraduate institutions, allowing them to fully engage in their undergraduate/graduate studies with little student loan debt.
PUPP contracted with ETS to produce a comprehensive evaluation of our work during 2015-2016. ETS took a deep dive into our program operations, scholar outcomes, parent and alumni engagement and more. The reports were published on the Wiley Online Library’s ETS Research Report Series site in February 2018.
