Sacramento Cal-SOAP Consortium


The Sacramento Cal-SOAP Consortium is one of 16 California Student Opportunity and Access Programs (Cal-SOAP) funded and administered statewide by the California Student Aid Commission. The project strives to effectively communicate information about college education and financial aid opportunities while helping raise the achievement levels of low-income students.

Locally, Sacramento Cal-SOAP delivers a college and financial aid advising program to students and families in local high schools.

Cash for College

Cash for College is a program designed to help low-income and first-generation college students apply for financial aid, increasing access to education and career/technical training beyond high school. Sacramento Cal-SOAP coordinates Cash for College workshops in Sacramento County that provide valuable information and help students/families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), California Dream Act Application (CADAA), and Chafee Grant application (for foster youth).
