This is a great opportunity for students! Not only does Project GRAD provide students with a scholarship to attend college, but provides them with the essential skills needed to be successful in high school and college. Project GRAD assists student with SAT/ACT prep, encourages all students to strive for their best, gives real life college experiences, etc. I only wish my daughter who recently graduated from high school was given the same opportunity!!!

The work that Project GRAD (PG) does to enhance the lives of underserved families is unparalleled. As a product of the readiness, access and success services, I can attest to the impact it has on First Generation College students. I am the fourth of five children, and the only person in my family to graduate high school and college. This would not have been possible had it not been for the exposure I received through Project GRAD. I was taken on various college tours, individually advised by informed college admission & financial aid specialist. As a result, I learned what was necessary to successfully enroll and graduate college. Project GRAD really understand that value of a college education and empowers students and families to understand it life altering impact. As a 2013 graduate of Morehouse College and currently a Consultant for a Fortune 500 company, I understand that Graduation Really Achieves Dreams.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand its model and best practices accross the state of Georgia and US.

Project GRAD continues to serve Metro-Atlanta students by providing the guidance, support and education required for students to move forward in the careers in life. Through my involvement with Project GRAD, I was able to visit my alma mater and spread word of how I was able to overcome various obstacles to get to were I am now. Without Project GRAD many of Metro-Atlanta students would not be provided the opportunity to visit various colleges and look beyond the boundaries of Atlanta. I thank Project GRAD for all the support they've given me and for the support they continue to provide to Atlanta's youth.

As a Brumley GRAD scholar, I was afforded the opportunity to work with many influential individuals, visit various colleges and receive motivation that kept me moving forward. Project GRAD Atlanta assisted me in completing my undergraduate studies at BU, I owe them the world for providing me with opportunities!!
