J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College proposes to create a semester-long laptop loan program for first-generation college students who demonstrate the greatest need through an application process. Forty students will be selected each spring and fall semester beginning spring 2021. Twenty students are expected during summer terms. The grant funded project will recruit a final cohort in August 2022. A total of 200 first-generation students are projected to be served. Reynolds will further work to close the digital divide by providing three technology workshops per semester to every student who borrows a laptop. These workshops will demonstrate the basics of laptop operation as well as give a short primer on the software the students will need to be successful in their courses.
