In order to address attainment we need to increase and improve the network of student support programs for Colorado’s high school and post-high school students.
With significant investments in student support programs throughout the state, the Scholarship Initiative has made headway towards its goal of providing resources that help students get to and through certificate, associates and bachelors programs. In the first two years, $6.8 million was awarded to 28 programs serving more than 14,000 students directly and impacting more than 15,500. More than 90 percent of these students come from low-income homes and are students of color.
Earlier this year the program expanded support for collective impact initiatives and new partners. In June 2016, 12 new programs were awarded two-year grants, and continued funding was announced for 2014 grantees. In August 2016, 3 new initiative were selected to receive our collective impact grant aimed at closing the attainment gap. In October 2016, 19 programs that had received grants in 2014 were awarded a second round of funding.
