Frequently Asked Questions

Do students have to live on campus?

The intent of the program is to have live in a shared residential housing arrangement (Lincoln Hall dorm), to allow them to acclimate to independent living. Due to COVID 19 precautions, the 2020 Cohort of students are living at home.

How can we contribute to funding for the program?

Anyone who wishes to contribute to The Country Roads Program may do so regardless of the donation amount. This may include individuals, small or large business owners, and other groups. We worked closely with the WVU Foundation to establish a program fund. This fund gathers all donations and contributions for the program into one place so that we can develop scholarships and support the other costs associated with implementing the program.
