- Rising Scholars Network - The Rising Scholars Network grew out of Corrections to College California, an independent initiative that aimed
to increase public higher education access and success for incarcerated and formerly
incarcerated students. In 2020, Corrections to College California merged with the
Foundation and refined its focus to provide support for students at the California
Community Colleges. The result of this partnership was the creation of the Rising
Scholars Network, a group of community colleges dedicated to opening opportunity and
academic achievement for students who have experienced the criminal justice system.
