This is for college and career readiness programming aimed at Scholars, SSP participants and returning adults (especially Scholar parents). Applicants can be awarded up to $5000 for programming taking place between end of December and mid-June 2018. These funds are made available through Indiana GEAR UP, and the grant is reimbursement only. This is in place of the College Success Grants that were awarded last year.
The goal is to create capacity and strengthen partnerships between k-12 schools, colleges/universities, community organizations, and businesses. You do not have to be members of the College Success Coalitions, and preference will be given to applicants who are serving GEAR UP schools. We also ask that these applications represent collaborative and sustainable partnerships among multiple organizations.
