Proposal for the 2009/2010 IIF project "Student-Parent Success." From the original description: "ParentLink is seeking $25,000 in seed money to create a student-centered project called Student-Parent Success. The goal of Student-Parent Success is to enable student parents to: problem-solve based on interpersonal interactions, learn from academic resources, and to both access and discover community resources in order to enhance their educational experience while promoting better familial interaction in the face of academic needs. Recent research shows that student-parents, while gaining support from family, experience higher rates of attrition and life-stress (Scott, Burns & Cooney, 1996). This is why we at ParentLink believe that there is a need for an intervention concerning student-parents, which is an underserved audience on all college campuses."
