The program is designed to raise the education level of Galveston’s local workers and reduce poverty for Galveston families. The Universal Access program is unique – the only one of it’s kind in the nation that is created and supported by the local community. It is designed to secure a tuition award to every eligible student living in the Galveston College district.
Since making this promise in 2001, Galveston College has educated over 1500 students using Universal Access funds. The Moody Foundation grant will assist in securing tuition awards for the fund which is managed by the Galveston College Foundation.
