On August 11, 2022, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) released a notice inviting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2022 “Postsecondary Success Program.” There is approximately $5 million in funding available, and ED expects to make between 5-8 two-year awards of between $600,000 to $1 million. Applications are due October 11, 2022.
In the initial pilot, eligible institutions include those that are currently eligible for Ed funding through its Title III and V programs—this includes Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs), Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs), and colleges eligible for the Strengthening Institutions Program (SIP). (For current eligibility, see the 2022 Title III and V program eligibility matrix here.) All institutions of higher education are eligible to apply as a consortium, however, so long as the lead applicant is eligible to participate in Title III or V programs.
The federal register notice includes a significant amount of explanatory detail if your institution is interested in applying, including requirements about levels of evidence; requirement to submit a logic model (ED suggests this as a resource); and application instructions. The application itself is available at grants.gov; you will need to register a login to access the digital application.
Please feel free to share this opportunity with colleagues who might be interested.
