College Access Grants

Connecting high school graduates to postsecondary opporutnities

Overview

Working under the premise that too few Georgians possess the credentials needed for good jobs and a competitive economy, the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education is working to recruit more high school graduates, especially low-income, to enroll in college. The 2018 grants have been awarded to several local Chambers of Commerce that are interested in helping make college enrollment and completion more attainable.

We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2019 College Access Grant Awards.
