In 1999, TPI launched its first college success program on behalf of an anonymous donor. This program, called Janey Scholars, was designed to address the full array of barriers that can prevent low-income students from completing college. Since then, TPI has partnered with a number of additional funders to create college success programs that are transforming the lives of young people from around the country. Each program is tailored to fit the goals of the funder – for example, supporting students from specific cities or states, or with particular life circumstances. We understand the elements critical to sustaining success, including flexible financial resources, mentoring, academic support, peer networking, and enrichment opportunities.

We have also worked with clients to create and manage annual and endowed scholarship and college success programs at institutions that include Boston College, Dartmouth College, Columbia University, Berklee College of Music, Duke University, University of North Carolina, and Yale University.
