From the provost: Program matches student savings

from-the-provost-logoPULLMAN, Wash. – More than 400 low-income Washington State University students who save $1,000 in a year for school expenses will be eligible to have it matched with $4,000 more as part of the new Assets for Independence program.

The Office of the Provost will administer the program, Student Financial Services is offering matching funds and the program is bolstered by a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The five-year program is the latest successful collaboration between the provost and a university department or college to promote student success.

The research and proposal development process for student success is directed by Michael Highfill in the provost’s office; contact him at michael.highfill@wsu.edu.
