Grant Infusion for Gateway to College Program

Grant Infusion for Gateway to College Program
January 22, 2010

The Gateway to College Program, which helps high school dropouts and near-dropouts finish high school while they get a start on college-level courses, is announcing today $13 million in grants from four foundations to expand to 15 more community colleges and in some new directions. The program now works with 24 two-year institutions in 15 states, including Portland Community College in Oregon, where it was founded. The grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Open Society Institute, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the Kresge Foundation will add to that list and also expand the program to 18- to 26-year-olds, in a pilot program at nine colleges.
