The college completion program is administered by Wallin Education Partners on behalf of specific donors for specific scholars. Financial aid is distributed directly to the college as long as the scholar is making appropriate progress toward graduation. Because of longstanding partnerships with colleges, Wallin Education Partners leverages donor funding  to ensure that it is not displaced by other aid available to students. We work diligently to ensure that donor support is the “last dollar” and actually reduces the cost of attendance. This approach results in a manageable level of debt of students with nearly 40% graduating without debt.  Donors and scholars form strong and meaningful relationships that serve to enrich the donor experience and ensure scholar’s success. The benefits of this program include:

  • Opportunity to personally name the scholarship
  • Donor partner preferences are considered during the selection and matching process
  • Wallin Education Partners manages all aspects of the administration of donor partners’ scholarships
  • Scholar recruitment and selection
  • Documenting and reporting on student progress
  • Maintain relationships with all colleges and universities to ensure effective collaboration
  • Effective disbursement of financial aid to maximize funding from all sources
  • Donor partners receive regular reports and updates on the progress of their scholars
  • Donor partners have access to scholars and alumni as part of corporate talent development and diversity efforts
  • Recognition at events, through online and print media and website.
