Civic Ventures Invites Community Colleges to Apply for Encore Career Grants
Deadline: April 24, 2009

The MetLife Foundation/Civic Ventures Community College Encore Career Project seeks to assist older adults (age 50 and older) who want “encore careers” combining continued income, personal fulfillment, and social impact. The Community College Encore Career Project is sponsored by Civic Ventures, a think tank dedicated to America’s baby boomers, work, and social purpose, and is funded by the MetLife Foundation.

The Encore Career Project will award grants of up to $25,000 each to eight community colleges in the United States that are developing innovative encore career programs for students age 50 and older in education, healthcare, nonprofit leadership, and the environment.

Accredited two-year community, junior, and technical colleges that offer associate degrees are eligible to apply.

The maximum grant to any individual community college or college consortium will be $25,000. Separate colleges within a larger community college district are eligible to apply.
