Semi-Annual Semester Move-In Campaign 

ASCEND with KSU CARES is dedicated to students identified as homeless and/or foster care youth while in high school, offering dedicated opportunities throughout the academic year for cultural and learning experiences. 

Sponsor one of our incoming scholars

The ASCEND Adopt a Student Program allows you, your company, or organization to be the sponsor of an incoming student in the ASCEND Program. Your gift helps offset the cost of housing fees and provides students with the necessary supplies to outfit their new room and prepare for the upcoming semester.

Program Impact

The Adopt a Student Program ensures that ASCEND scholars are able to focus on their academic endeavors rather than their financial security, thereby increasing the likelihood of their academic success while at KSU.  Furthermore, KSU CARES provides our incoming ASCEND Program Scholars the opportunity to request supplies for our university and community partners to adopt. This ensures that scholars have all of the necessary school supplies as well as the special touches that will make their new room feel like home!

Sponsor Benefits
