Nonprofit promotes college education

College Possible Portland is in the process of recruiting low-income sophomores from Barlow, Davis Douglas, Gresham and Reynolds high schools who have a desire to earn college degrees.

Applications will be accepted through Friday, April 4, by College Possible staff members.

In its 13-year history, 98 percent of College Possible participants have been accepted to college, and nearly 94 percent have gone on to enroll in college.

These students are 10 times more likely to earn a college degree than low-income students nationally.

To be eligible, students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and qualify as low-income. They also must have a desire to attend a four-year college and commit to after-school sessions and some weekend events.

The program is free for these students and will include 320 programming hours.
