The College of Applied Science and Technology awards student persistence grants to as many identified students as funding permits. The fund benefits those students experiencing housing or food insecurity who also have a financial block on their ISU account preventing them from registering for the subsequent semester.
Your gift can make a huge difference to the individual students who are doing everything possible to earn an ISU degree but have been hit with financial challenges. Your gift also contributes to CAST's goal of raising retention and graduation rates as we work to keep our current students enrolled.
