ECMC Foundation Invites Proposals for Higher Education Guide
Deadline: May 15, 2006

The ECMC Foundation (<a href=""></a>), an ECMC Group (<a href=""></a>) company, helps under-served and disadvantaged people further their educational goals.

The foundation invites proposals for the development of a guide for postsecondary student services and financial-aid professionals to use as a resource to retain students from first-generation, college-going, low-income backgrounds. This guide is envisioned as a toolkit containing both reference materials and strategies to encourage and support the success of students to complete their courses of study and receive higher education degrees. The design of the guide should be general enough to be used at all institutions of higher education while being able to be tailored to fit different types of campuses.

The foundation seeks a comprehensive guide that supports higher education retention and degree completion for targeted students by compiling and organizing information on academic, financial, and social issues in one place. The foundation also seeks innovative strategies to identify and recruit students who could benefit from this project as well as creative methods to impart this information and make it accessible to retention specialists and students.

The foundation requests proposals from institutions of higher education and organizations with experience in targeted students’ college retention programs and issues. Grants are expected to fall in the $75,000 to $125,000 range.
