Make College Possible!

2013 Diploma Campaign

Participate in the 2013 Diploma Campaign to support the Community College Access Program (CCAP) and provide a cost-free college education to high school graduates from across the Roanoke Valley.

Donate online:


Throughout the month of May, at any local location of Kroger or Stop-In Food Stores, donate $1 or $5 to support Virginia Western’s Community College Access Program (CCAP) through the 2013 Diploma Campaign.

The Diploma Campaign launched May 5, and Kroger and Stop-In Food Stores customers have the opportunity to make college possible for local high school students.

Beginning in Fall Semester 2013, CCAP is available region-wide and allows local high school graduates to attend Virginia Western for two years cost-free.  Administered by the Virginia Western Educational Foundation, CCAP now serves Botetourt, Craig, Franklin and Roanoke Counties and the Cities of Roanoke and Salem.

Graduating seniors of participating high schools are eligible to apply for CCAP. Applicants must have attended the high school in, and have been a resident of, the participating locality in which they are applying for at least two years prior to graduation.
