Black, Latinx and/or Hispanic, Indigenous, and underrepresented Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students are 30% more likely than white students to need to exit post-secondary education before completing a degree, and non-credentialed adults are less likely to thrive. Post-secondary education opportunities help to promote increased economic mobility for students.
Access to post-secondary education includes:
- Programs that enable students to earn college credit while in high school.
- Admissions navigation support, academic and financial counseling.
- Re-engagement strategies for students who have stopped attending school.
- Supports for non-traditional students.
Priority will be given to proposals that:
- Offer scheduling flexibility, including nights and/or weekends.
- Support participants through graduation.
- Prioritize high demand credentials (such as manufacturing, drafting, information security).
