Grantee Meetings

The alignment of student success programs and tuition assistance greatly increases the chances of a student's on time completion of a degree or credential. Because the intent of our program is to fuse these two initiatives together, we will host both scholarship providers and program grant recipients this fall in regional grantee events.

Grantees should extend the invitation to other members of their project team, including community members, and other organizational partners that are integral to their work.

Annual Summer Symposium

As our network of student support and scholarship programs grow statewide the location of our annual convening will continue to change making it more accessible to all partners. This year, Matching Student Scholarship grantees will also be part of the meeting.

Annual Fall Regional Meetings

The intent of these regional meetings is to allow us the opportunity to get a more in-depth perspective of each unique community and program. This allows us to not only hear about the great successes but also to identify challenges that we can then take back to our team to trouble shoot.

Spring 2017 Site Visits

The Scholarship Initiative strives to better understand our partner's programs and the work they do. We believe site visits are a way for grantees to show us their program “in-action” while giving them an opportunity to complement their written end of year report and telling their story.
Purpose of the visit

  • To gain a better understanding of the organization’s work or mission
  • To gather subjective as well as objective information
  • To give grantees an opportunity to highlight their activities and achievements
  • To determine personal response to the people involved in the program
  • To problem-solve challenges and obstacles they are facing
