Project Lifeline encourages all participants to follow their ambitions and apply to whatever universities, community colleges or trade schools they most wish to attend. If they are undecided, Project Lifeline staff will help them gather additional information, schedule interviews, and narrow their choices to the schools most likely to help them achieve their goals. Whenever possible, the Project Lifeline coordinators will engage faculty and administrators at its students’ schools to build the beginnings of a support system for them.

Here is a small selection of some of the schools Project Lifeline scholarship recipients have attended.
