Complete College America Launches State Grants for Innovative Ways to Boost Degrees

Complete College America launched the Completion Innovation Challenge, a $10 million competitive grant program for states to significantly boost college completion and close attainment gaps for traditionally underrepresented populations.

A national organization whose mission is to work with states to increase the number of Americans with college degrees or certificates of workplace value, Complete College America established the grant program with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Complete College America invites governors from all 50 states to pursue 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, statewide strategies to increase college completion.
