The "SOARing for Education" Affiliation program is designed to promote community building amongst different campus registered student organizations and the SOAR Center to work together and uplift the mission and vision of the center. SOARing for Education will develop authentic student leaders that will be equipped with the tools, skills, and knowledge to execute innovative, student-initiated outreach and retention programs through mentorship and student led trainings. The outreach and retention programs will foster critical dialogue, mentorship and reimagine the educational system to improve college access, retention, and graduation rates for historically underrepresented and under-resourced  communities in higher education. 

The program aspires to build a coalition network of students leaders that would help to challenge inequities faced by underrepresented and underserved students and advocate for resources to better serve our community. Please note that your registered campus organization must become a SOAR Affiliate in order to apply for retention and outreach grants.

We encourage your organization to submit the affiliation form before Sunday, October 16th, 2022.

If you have any questions please email

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
