Princeton University Has a Great Program That Helps Disadvantaged Students Attend College

Students enrolled in Princeton University's Preparatory Program

Since 2001, Princeton University has been offering a helping hand to low-income students who aspire to attend college but are crippled by their limited financial resources. A recent study showed the program has indeed helped low-income students reach their educational goals.
The Princeton University Preparatory Program (PUPP), an intensive three-year program that supports students from high school until college, helps high-achieving students from low-income backgrounds through a personalized and comprehensive approach.

In a recent evaluation done by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), it was concluded that not only did the PUPP helped its scholars finish college but it also helped them improve their self-confidence, quality of life, and outlook for the future.

According to the ETS, the PUPP scholars demonstrate strong academic results. More than 90% of its scholars have persisted in college, either completing a degree in 4 to 6 years. It was also noted that most scholars perform very well.

The people behind PUPP is looking to expand the program to reach more students who need support in attending college. It has also served as a benchmark for other universities and colleges to follow.
