In the United States
In the U.S., six in 10 students graduate college within six years. That gap is sharper – three out of 10 – for students who experience financial barriers. Through Dell Scholars and other college success programs, we provide individualized support so students can succeed in college and open more doors to a lifetime of meaningful opportunities.
In the United States, college graduates have significantly higher earnings over the course of a lifetime. College represents an opportunity that can have a lifechanging impact, yet just over half of Pell Grant recipients will reach graduation within six years. Our programs focus on providing students with the support they need to thrive while partnering with institutions to improve graduation outcomes at scale.
In South Africa
Many South African students are determined to transform their lives and communities. However, the challenges of university life mean that just two in five students from under-resourced communities will graduate. Through our Dell Young Leaders program and other university partnerships, we equip students to graduate and attain fulfilling professional careers.
