 Complete College America Launches Completion Innovation Challenge 

2/23/2011

Complete College America today launched the Completion Innovation Challenge, a new $10 million competitive grant program for states designed to inspire and enhance efforts to significantly boost college completion and close attainment gaps.  A national organization whose sole mission is to work with states to increase the number of Americans with college degrees or certificates of workplace value, Complete College America has established the grant program with funding support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Beginning today, Complete College America is inviting Governors from all 50 states to take up the Completion Innovation Challenge by submitting proposals to win one of ten $1 million, 18-month implementation grants.  Grants will be awarded to states that produce the best plans to develop and deploy innovative, state-wide strategies to substantially increase college completion.

States must express their intent to apply for funding by March 18, 2011.
