Local nonprofit College Possible was recently awarded a 2020-21 Community Investment Grant from United Way of the Midlands for $20,000. College Possible supports nearly 2,000 students annually from nine Omaha-area partner high schools, University of Nebraska at Omaha, and other nearby and national colleges. Students receive support from a coach — a Serve Nebraska AmeriCorps member — who assists with ACT exam preparation, scholarship and college applications, financial aid preparation, campus visits and college fairs. Coaches also help students and families make informed college choices utilizing financial literacy resources and information to find best academic and social fit.
