Student Support Services awarded new $1.4 million grant

A new five-year grant of $1.4 million has been awarded to the Student Support Services program at Ripon College by the U.S. Department of Education, TRIO division.

The goals of the Student Support Services program are to increase the retention and graduation of first-generation students, whose parents/guardians did not receive a four-year college degree; students who come from families with lower incomes relative to family size; and students with physical or learning disabilities.

Ripon offers academic support and guidance, supplemental grant aid, educational-cultural opportunities, a high school-to-college Bridge program, financial literacy exposure and graduate school information.

Student Support Services has received consistent grant funding from the Department of Education in every grant cycle since inception of funding at Ripon College.

The staff includes Dan Krhin, executive director; Lisa Zeman, associate director and disabilities coordinator; and Myra Gilreath, assistant director.
