Columbia Basin College received a $2.1 million grant renewal from federal education officials to help migrant farm workers and their children get a college education.
CBC has received funding from the College Assistance Migrant Program, or CAMP, since 2002. The program is under the U.S. Department of Education.
The money goes toward migrant farm workers or the children of migrant farm workers who are seeking a bachelor's degree and provides academic, career and personal counseling during the first year of college.
Eligible participants must be U.S. citizens and have worked 75 days in the past two years in agriculture or have participated in a migrant education program.
Never miss a local story.
Almost 90 percent of CBC's CAMP students finish their first year of college.
