columbus scholar house


Columbus Scholar House brings together education and housing services for at-risk student parents, who otherwise face barriers in completing their degree. Qualified participants attend an accredited college or university full-time while residing at the newly constructed Charles Building in Columbus's Near East Side. The student parents receive supportive services through the OSU ACCESS Collaborative programto help them stay in school and maintain their grades while also providing for the needs of their children. Services are focused on issues such as:


 
•  Academic performance
•  Financial management
•  Navigating the higher education system
•  Goal-setting & problem-solving
•  Accessing reliable & affordable childcare
•  Parenting skills
•  Transitioning from school to work

CPO Impact and OSU ACCESS also collaborate with Columbus State Community College. We continue to seek partnerships with additional universities to best support student parents.
