The goal of the I am College Bound campaign is to provide New Hampshire high school students with the inspiration, information and planning support to pursue higher education goals. The Center for College Planning team especially encourages low-income students, their parents and their mentors to recognize that New Hampshire campuses and the U.S. Department of Education offer strong financial aid programs which enable eligible individuals to access financial assistance in paying for education beyond high school. To inform, engage and grow public awareness about financial aid programs, students are incentivized to share content with friends and peers within their networks through monthly promotions.

Although common to British and Australian students, Americans are just beginning to see and accept the benefits of a gap year.
