Get 2 College

A program of the Woodward Hines Education Foundation, Get2College specializes in college planning and financial aid in Mississippi. We serve any student seeking a post-secondary education, with a special focus on students who have been traditionally underrepresented in college.

Each year, we look for the next generation of aspiring workers who will work smart and hard.  The Work Ethic Scholarship Program doesn’t focus on test scores, grades, or grammar.  It’s about the people who share our values and understand the importance of work ethic, personal responsibility, delayed gratification, and a positive attitude.
