The College Assistance Migrant Program, CAMP, was created in 1972. This federally funded program aims to increase retention and promote academic success for migrant farmworker students since dropout rates among this group are incredibly high. As a result, CAMP participants are recruited during high school to facilitate their transition to college. The program offers students a way to integrate into campus life by grouping them in a cohort to provide a community of peer support. Moreover, CAMP assists first-year migrant students by covering their tuition, providing student housing, arranging tutoring and counseling services, and helping students apply for scholarships and assisting with paperwork to continue their educations. To qualify for the program, the student or their parents must have worked as a migratory or seasonal farmworker for at least 75 days during the two years before applying to a university, or the students must have participated in a federal migrant education program during high school. CAMP aids approximately 2,400 students annually. This program has helped many migrant students enroll in higher education and has increased the rate of bachelor degree attainment within this group.
