About this grant

This grant will enable Rutgers University Foundation to develop a college access and success toolkit for stakeholders in K-12 and beyond who are interested in developing pre-college bridge programming for underserved students. Using the Rutgers Future Scholars program as the backdrop, Rutgers University hosted a national convening in 2013 for more than 220 attendees across 20 states working in the pre-college and college access field. This convening spotlighted the most creative and effective approaches for preparing low-income and minority students for college. In building off the 2013 convening, recommended support will allow the grantee to provide a free, open source guide and compendium on best practices in pre-college programming and support the ongoing evaluation activities of its Rutgers Future Scholars model.
