The WINGS program is designed to help promote the graduation of students pursuing a two-year Associate of Science degree, one-year College Credit Certificate or Postsecondary Adult Vocational Certificate. The WINGS program for financial support provides participants with academic support, partial tuition assistance, career counseling, and opportunities for personal development. To be eligible to participate in the program, applicants must be eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant.

Funding for the WINGS program is derived from the Carl Perkins Vocational Education Act, which requires student grant recipients to be enrolled in a technical education program.
