Program Summary

The College Assistance Migrant Program is funded by the US Department of Education to help migrant or seasonal farm workers and their children go to college. Serving over 1,000 students since 1984, Boise State’s CAMP is one of the most established in the nation.

Financial support as well as counseling, tutoring, and mentoring helps first year students succeed. Students consider the program a caring “home base” to encourage them as they broaden their education.

Opportunities abound in Boise, Idaho’s business, technology, and government center. Students engage in internships, studies abroad, student leadership, and honors programs.

After the first year, CAMP continues offering academic and personal support throughout college. The program helps participants secure jobs/internships, grants, scholarships to finance the balance of college.

Upon graduation, alumni become successful engineers, accountants, business administrators, entrepreneurs, social workers, educators, criminal justice professionals, government officials, information technology specialists, healthcare professionals, and community leaders.
