What We Do
The College Success Foundation (CSF) provides academic and financial support to attend college for eligible low-income and/or foster care students. The CSF has been a part of Eastern Washington University since 2001. There are two CSF Programs at EWU; the College Success Navigator Program supports Achievers, Leadership 1000 and Governor Scholars. The Passport Navigator Program who supports Passport Scholars.
Once the program's scholars arrive on Eastern's campus, the CSF staff members strive to connect the students to a variety of resources that will enhance their academic success. Additionally, the CSF Program intentionally creates social opportunities to incorporate participants into the campus community.
