Adams State University was awarded a five-year grant of $2.1 million by the U.S. Department of Education to create a College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP).

CAMP aims to improve access to and success in higher education for those whose families perform migrant or seasonal agricultural work, according to CAMP Director Pete Gomez.
