Full Circle grant will help transfer students on path to careers

Elizabeth Sweet Sacramento State’s commitment to inclusion and success for transfer students has reached another milestone. A new five-year, $1.75 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education is aimed at improving graduation rates for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students who are the first in their family to attend college, as well as non-AAPI low-income and first-generation students who transfer from community college.

The grant will fund the second phase of Sac State’s Full Circle Project, established in 2011 with a federal grant to provide leadership development for 100 freshman AAPI students. The new grant renames the program Full Circle Project: College-to-Career Pathways, and FCP/C2C will focus on education, graduation, internships, and career placement for as many as 200 AAPI and low-income students who enter Sac State as juniors.

“This investment in our students is an investment in our nation’s future as we continue to become an even more multicultural nation,” says President Robert S. Nelsen. “The Full Circle Project is a model for all higher education.”
