The Impact of Project GRAD Houston

Project GRAD reaches deeply into the communities we serve in order to achieve our mission, partnering with trusted community organizations, high schools and charter schools, and community colleges and universities. Our programs provide a continuum of services during students’ high school years, as they transition to college, and while they are pursuing a workforce certificate, associate’s degree, or bachelor’s degree.

With nearly 25 years of experience working in low-income communities GRAD is Houston’s premier organization supporting students on the journey to and through college. GRAD has a deep knowledge of the challenges facing students and families as they strive to create a better life through education. Since Project GRAD was founded:

  • More than 6,800 have enrolled in college with Project GRAD’s support.
  • 67% of GRAD Scholars are completing college, which is triple the success of their Texas peers; and
  • More than 2,100 Project GRAD Scholars have graduated from college.
