KIPP Forward

At the national level, KIPP has created college partnerships with the institutions that share our belief that a student’s zip code and family income should not dictate whether he or she attains a degree.

Partner universities commit to not only admitting KIPP students, but also providing critical resources once those students are on campus to ensure that the students remain on track for a college degree. Current KIPP college partners include Vanderbilt University, Spelman College, Franklin and Marshall College, Colby College, and many more.
