Our mission

Helping the students of Appalachia overcome the financial burden of higher education.Appalachian Connection Mission Statement

Although Appalachia may not be as downtrodden as much of the media would have you believe, the truth of the matter is that most of Appalachia is not flourishing. We believe there is a wealth of prosperity lying dormant within these hills. Appalachian Connection was founded on the principle that education is the key to unlock that prosperity. It is our mission to find and nourish bright young Appalachian minds in students who are dedicated to making meaningful, life-long contributions to their communities.
