The HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program helps financially stressed students at Wayne State University reach their goal to graduate. The program provides resources for students-in-need, such as housing support, textbooks and other school supplies, clothing, transportation, and child-care assistance. The mission of the program is to ensure that no student abandons their dream of earning a degree solely because of housing or financial challenges.




Thanks to the HIGH Program, I can now afford to succeed and give back when I obtain my nursing degree to help others who were just like me. I would not have graduated this upcoming May had I not received you guys' help.
