Project Description

Joan Demeules, Director of Access & Success, was awarded a grant to support students explore what works by connecting with grandees on a regular basis, to hear about their success and challenges. Great Lakes provides funds to support an emergency grant program for students pursuing a four-year degree. The Access and Success program would administer the grants and all BA and BS students who are eligible. The grants are part of an overall retention program that Great Lakes found to be very successful at the community colleges. The grant funds would help to replace $20,000 in emergency grants that had been available through the MN Dept. Of Health Grant. The intended outcome is to improve retention and graduation rates for low-income students.
