BECOME AN OPPORTUNITY SPONSOR
“In OppNet, you’re learning about things that won’t just help you get into college, but will help you in the future by finding a job and learning about the professional world.
There are so many things OppNet covers. It feels good to know OppNet will always have my back.”
– Josephine, OppNet Fellow and Gettysburg College Class of 2020

Did you know?
- While less than 10% of low-income students nationally will graduate from college, and even fewer are prepared for careers, 100% of OppNet Fellows graduate from college and 85% secure a professional-track job or graduate school admission within six months of college graduation.
- 88% of our Fellows will be the first in their families to graduate college and 54% ultimately attend colleges they had never heard of before OppNet, including Amherst, Johns Hopkins, Middlebury, Smith, etc.
- Over the course of six years in our program, Fellows meet 500+ professionals through weekly classes, workshops, panel discussions and five summers of internships.
Opportunity Sponsors help make all of this possible for our Fellows! With your gift of $5,000, we can provide a full “Year of Opportunity” for one of our incredible students, helping them achieve college and career success.
