Isatu Barry is awarded the Denison/Columbus Alliance Scholarship

Denison University announces an exciting new partnership with I Know I Can to make college more accessible to students from Columbus City Schools. Each year, Denison will fund up to 20 full-tuition scholarships for qualified students from Columbus City Schools. With 20 entering students each year, the new program will accommodate up to 80 students at Denison in any given academic year.

Partnering with I Know I Can, a nonprofit organization that works with the Columbus public school district, the program will provide pre-collegiate training and support for students, many of whom may be the first in their family to attend college. Support will continue throughout the students’ tenures, ensuring strong graduation rates and post-collegiate employment opportunities.

The program, titled Denison-Columbus Alliance Scholars, builds from lessons learned by Denison over 15 years working in partnership with some of the top mentoring and college access programs in the country. President Adam Weinberg stated, “Taking everything we have learned, we have built a program that will bring a cohort of students from Columbus City Schools to Denison, providing the mentorship and support they need over a 4 year period to gain a world class education and graduate ready to succeed in their professional pursuits.”
