Does focus on intensive one-on-one counseling justifies investment?

Bottom Line will conduct a seven-year national study into the effectiveness of its programs seeking to help low-income students enter and graduate from higher-quality, lower-cost colleges, the non-profit announced today.
Bottom Line is one of three organizations to win funding from the Coalition for Evidence-Based Policy’s Randomized Control Trial Evaluation, which studies effectiveness in social spending. Bottom Line received $100,000 to track 1,400 students and study whether its focus on intensive one-on-one counseling throughout high school and college justifies further investment.

The non-profit will appear alongside the coalition’s other two grant winners at a White House conference hosted by the Office of Science and Technology Policy on July 28.
