Grant Alert: Start a Gateway to College Program in Your Community
Gateway to College National Network (GtCNN) builds the capacity of colleges, school districts, and states to revolutionize education for high school dropouts and underprepared college students so that all young people can achieve college credentials.
GtCNN is interested in bringing its unique model to more communities and students throughout the country. In the fall of 2012, GtCNN will select up to ten college/K-12 partnerships for multi-year contracts worth between $325,000 and $440,000.
In addition to start-up funds, successful applicants will receive training, technical assistance, professional development opportunities, and program evaluation—from the initial year of planning and training, through program implementation, and for as long as the program remains a member of the network, which currently includes programs at 35 colleges in 20 states.
The initial application process will close on April 30, 2012. Contracts will be announced during the fall of 2012. Register on the GtCNN website for complete program guidelines and application information.
