Talent Search Department of Education Funding Available
The U.S. Department of Education is accepting applications for grants for the Talent Search (TS) Program. This worthy program provides funding to identify qualified individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds and encourage them to complete secondary school and enroll in a program of postsecondary education. The program encourages persons who have not completed secondary or postsecondary programs to enter or reenter and complete these programs. Talent Search projects provide connections to high quality academic tutoring services, connections to education or counseling services designed to improve the financial aid literacy and financial planning for postsecondary education for students and their parents, and provides activities and services specially designed for students who are limited English proficient, students from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in postsecondary education, students with disabilities, students who are homeless children and youth, students in foster care or are aging out of foster care, or other disconnected students. The goal of TS is to increase the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete secondary school and enroll in a postsecondary institution.
An estimated 464 awards will be made ranging from $230,000 – $702,000.
Deadline is 12/28/10.
