What is "Summer Melt?
Nearly 20 percent of students who are accepted and planning to attend college “melt” away during the summer prior, many of them are forced to give up on the opportunity due to financial, logistical and social barriers. Financial obstacles include application fees or room deposits. According to the U.S. Department of Education, “The lower the student’s income, the more likely they are to experience summer melt because they lack the necessary resources and support.”
The Lynwood Partners Educational Foundation (LPEF) has established the Lynwood Promise Scholarship fund to remove barriers to student success as they transition into college.
All donations will be invested in Lynwood Unified students that are in need of assistance with housing, materials, books, meals and travel expenses, among other needs.
