MOSTe Partners with Lycoming College


MOSTE is excited to announce that we have entered into a partnership with Lycoming College. Lycoming’s President Trachte even signed his name with a MOSTE pen, confirming that the two organizations are now jointly committed to the success of their first-generation college students.

Two MOSTE girls have already enrolled as Lycoming freshmen in fall 2015. “Our goal is that they’re the first of many,” says MOSTE President Mary Forgione. “I’m thrilled that Lycoming understands our mission and wants to help us create a college-going culture among our students. What a great way to kick off MOSTE’s 30th anniversary year!”

Fly-In Program


More MOSTE scholars Wendy and Maria were selected for a three-day fly-in program sponsored by Colorado College. They were given the great opportunity to get to know the students and faculty who bring the college to life! The Tigers on a Quest program allowed Wendy and Maria attend a class, which gave them a sense of campus life and Colorado College academics. The Colorado College fly in program, which targets first generation students, is unique in that they also pay for a student’s parent to fly in and learn about the college. Maria’s dad took advantage of this opportunity.
