Vision & Mission

Wily Scholars are promising students who are experiencing life challenges such as homelessness or foster care, or whose parents may be deceased, dealing with addiction, mental health issues, or incarceration.


Establish the Wily Network on college campuses across New England to improve graduation outcomes for students navigating their college careers independently.



  • Wily works to ensure Scholars have the tools and networks necessary to thrive in four-year residential colleges.
  • Wily strives to empower Scholars to transition successfully into post-college life and become vibrant members of their communities.

The Wily Network provides a critical safety net for these Scholars as they navigate college on their own. The Wily program offers weekly clinical coaching, financial assistance, community-building support, and networking opportunities to help them move from surviving to thriving.
