The National College Advising Corps members do the work of a college counselor but inside the classroom and at no cost to students. Thanks to a $10 million dollar grant from the Belk Endowment, advisors have been placed in rural North Carolina high schools to help with everything from filling out the FAFSA to scholarship opportunities! Students that otherwise would not go to college are now attending.
