CLEVELAND — Cleveland State University is expected to receive a $1 million grant from KeyBank to fund the KeyBank Foundation Scholars Program, which will begin in the 2016-2017 school year.
The program aims to increase retention and on-time completion of undergraduate programs. The support programs will apply to new freshmen and current students who graduated from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.
The new scholars will receive extra guidance on-campus as well as instructional support and more time with academic advisors.
There will also be a seven-week summer program to help transition incoming freshmen into college successfully by building peer relationships and completing required courses ahead of the traditional fall semester. If students complete the summer academic program, they’re eligible for a book scholarship that can be renewed up to four years.
