Project START (Supported Training and Retraining) helps students overcome barriers they may encounter while reaching their academic and career goals. We can help students by providing financial assistance, helping with study skills and test taking, monitoring class progress, arranging special assistance, and serving as an advocate with instructors and other college personnel.

START assistance is available for a maximum of two or three consecutive semesters. Referrals are accepted on an ongoing basis from community agencies and Kirkwood counselors, instructors and staff. Students must apply and be accepted into the program.

Project START began as a cooperative effort between Kirkwood and the Hall-Perrine Foundation and receives continued funding from the Kirkwood Foundation.
