The Issue: Challenges for Nontraditional Students

A college education is a key tool for achieving career success and financial stability. But nontraditional students, including adult women returning to school, often face more difficulty than their peers in attaining degrees. For example, 38% of nontraditional undergraduates drop out within their first year, compared to 16% of traditional undergraduates, according to a report by the federal Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance. One of the greatest challenges for many nontraditional students is maintaining financial stability while being partially or completely out of the workforce.

The Campaign: Shipping Back-to-School Supplies to Women

For each $12 this Grassroots campaign raises, Jeannette Rankin Women’s Scholarship Fund can ship a back-to-school care package to one low-income woman aged 35 or older who is returning to school, be it for undergraduate education or vocational training. Each care package contains supplies such as flash drives, water bottles, gift cards, and notepads.
