Arriving on campus academically underprepared is one of the most common factors preventing students from traditionally underserved backgrounds from succeeding in college. To address this issue, the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation has announced its College Ready grant program.
Through the program, grants of up to $300,000 will be awarded to sustain, improve, or replicate college-success programming during the 2013-14 academic year. The program is designed to support efforts to help students from low-income households, students of color, and students who will be first in their family to attend college prepare for academic success.
