Welcome to Invest in College Success

Invest in College Success (ICS) is an innovative public-private partnership designed to help community college students make informed decisions on how to manage college costs and, in doing so, increase their likelihood of continuing higher education year-to-year and completing a college degree. The project partners - The Midas Collaborative, and uAspire, along with Bunker Hill, Northern Essex, and Springfield Technical Community Colleges - are working collaboratively to serve 1,400-1,600 students over the next two years. The outcomes and impacts will be closely studied by the evaluation partner, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Collectively, the partners bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with helping individuals from lower income backgrounds afford college, develop financial management skills and build economic assets.
