Pro Bono Program

Helping students succeed—it's in our DNA.

The CollegeVine Pro Bono Class of 2024

The application cycle for the class of 2023 is closed — but check back for updates on when the application for the class of 2024 will open.

Since our inception, we have worked with pro bono students who did not have the financial means to use a college advisor, helping them gain acceptance and scholarships to Harvard, UC Berkeley, and a number of other schools. Helping students who do not have advantages is a central part of our mission and who we are.

We want to help more students like these—talented, driven, and ambitious individuals with good hearts who, due to one circumstance or another, might not have access to expert admissions counseling. Be sure to check back for updates on the class of 2024 application season!
