The goal of the SEO College Persistence Challenge was to find new and creative solutions to some of the biggest barriers to graduating from college in four years: mental health, community, and financial aid. The challenge required applicants to develop solutions to reflect the gaps and needs of first generation, low income, high potential students.
Today, we are happy to announce the winner. Team Hood is a team of two SEO Scholar alumnae, who said their passion comes from the hope they were given by SEO. Their proposal consists of developing an app that helps college students to build networks, relationships, and support systems on their college campuses. Eventually, they would like to incorporate resources for overcoming financial obstacles and mental health issues.
Congratulations, Team Hood! The College Persistence Challenge is proudly powered by Skild.
