Support Iowa Students. Build Iowa's Workforce
The world is changing rapidly, and the demands for education and training after high school has never been more important. At the same time, families struggle to find a path to the right career and the right education and career training to get there.
ICAN has been helping students discover their talents, forge plans for their future, and find ways to pay since 1998. With your help, we can bridge the gap between wanting a career or degree, and achieving that dream.
Contribute to ICAN and Make a Difference
"I don't know what I would have done without the help of the Iowa College Access Network. I came for help with the FAFSA and, again when I needed help explaining the award letter to my daughter. The process would have been so confusing. Now my daughter wants to transfer and without your help today I would have been completely lost. Thanks so much for all of your help!"
— Cynthia Mosell, parent
