College Assistance Migrant Program
College Assistance Migrant Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, is designed to help students from migrant and seasonal farmworker families succeed in post-secondary education. The program enables 30 freshman students to enroll and be successful at WTAMU each school year.
Qualified applicants must have graduated from high school or received a G.E.D and be U.S. Permanent Resident or U.S. Citizen. In addition, the student must meet at least one of the three eligibility ciritera to apply.
Those accepted into the program will receive scholarships for up to $3,000 including $70 monthly stipends, a books scholarship and a variety of counseling services, including financial aid advisement and assistance with the application process.
Since CAMP’s 1999 inception at WTAMU, 77 percent of students involved in the program are still enrolled in higher education or already graduated.
