Our success has reached individuals in 43 countries, most US States, locally we are very pleased to have reached school and program administrators, adding to their available resources.
The Funding College Project is about finding and using techniques and strategies to support school aged and post high school activities. We work with students and families internationally. We identify, alerting interested parties to existing options, building contacts, answering questions, completing forms and nominations for prizes and awards. We are assessed through a number of portals (10 controlled by us) and allow and encourage others to use our open platform to promote their offerings. We post online first.
