Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation Seeks to Boost College Readiness
Deadline: November 5th, 2014 Funding: $600,000 A college degree represents a proven way up for students from low-income backgrounds. However, statistics show that when such students are unprepared for college-level math and English and forced into remedial classes, few finish their programs and realize the benefits of higher education. To address this problem, the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation has announced its guidelines for the 2015-17 College Ready grants program.
Through the program, two-year grants of up to $600,000 will be awarded to programs that serve students who, given appropriate attention, tutoring, and skill-building activities, can succeed in college-level math and English classes.
Eligible applicants include nonprofit colleges and universities and community-based organizations located in Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio, or Wisconsin. Programs must provide services during the 2015-17 academic years to high school juniors from traditionally underserved backgrounds.
Informational webinars for applicants will be held on September 10 for community-based organizations and September 11 for colleges. Both webinars will be available in a recording to be posted at the corporation’s website.
Complete program guidelines and application procedures are available at the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation Web site.

Indigenous Cultures: Empower, encourage, and protect the flourishing of Indigenous Peoples, cultures, and languages that carry forward ancient traditions of kinship with all of life.

Deadline: Rolling Funding: $25,000-$50,000 To ensure that all children get the development and education they need as a foundation for independence and success, the foundation seeks opportunities to invest in early child development (ages zero to eight), leading to reading proficiency by third grade, high school graduation, and pathways to meaningful employment. All children need the support of parents and community to assure their healthy development and education. The foundation is partnering with organizations working on early childhood education, with a commitment to whole child development, educational advocacy, family literacy, innovative educational practices, policy reform and lifelong learning. The foundation focuses on communities where children and families are most in need of high quality early intervention to achieve success by third grade and maintain it beyond. The foundation's approach is both bottom-up and top-down. The foundation seeks opportunities to increase its strategic presence by investing in national organizations and their networks. At state and local levels, the foundation simultaneously explores approaches to helping children and families in ways supported by their local communities.
