One Million Degrees' support programming impacts more than scholars. The community college population holds great potential, yet most community college students do not complete degrees. One Million Degrees is working to move the dial on the stubbornly low community college graduation rates, while preparing our scholars to make a positive impact on the economy and society.
OMD Scholars represent a diverse pipeline of qualified candidates, addressing the middle skills gap and supporting diversity in the workplace. They are graduating and building the skills needed to be successful in well-paid careers. Our scholars are re-building the middle class by breaking the poverty cycle for their families.
