Our Programs

Scholarships

Each year, CollegeReady provides over $450,000 in college scholarships to hundreds of students in Northeast Wisconsin. We are proud to have awarded almost $13 million in scholarships over the past 60 years.

College Readiness

CollegeReady’s NEW Scholars college readiness program is an afterschool program available to Green Bay middle and high school students who will be the first in their family to earn a college degree. 

Through academic support, college prep, parent workshops, service learning, and so much more, NEW Scholars breaks down barriers to higher education that exist for many low-income and first-generation students. Fundamental components of the program include reading, writing, character development, and parent engagement.

Participating students earn up to a $5,000 scholarship to the college/university of their choice.

NEW Scholars is pronounced “new” (not “n.e.w.”)
