We often think that high school is where students should start thinking about preparing for college, but KnowHow2GO and the Lumina Foundation for Education know that real success starts in middle school – where students first begin more rigorous coursework. That’s why they are banding together to half-fund middle school college readiness projects across 16 states.
So! Middle school teachers! If you’re interested in KnowHow2GO funding consider submitting projects that either a) focus on college access; or b) are academically rigorous and emphasize college readiness. Projects involving SAT/ACT prep, AVID programs, advanced coursework, and college visits are all encouraged by the Foundation.
Middle schools in the following states are eligible:
CA | CT | FL | ID | IL | IN | IA | KY | MA | MI | MT | NE | OH | TN | WA | WI
If you’re a teacher looking for inspiration, or a prospective donor looking to help, check out these great examples of qualifying projects:
