Community Colleges Invited to Apply for MetLife Foundation Community College Excellence Award
Deadline: August 31, 2005

Community colleges across the United States are invited to apply for the 2006 MetLife Foundation Community College Excellence Award.

Sponsored by the MetLife Foundation and administered by Jobs for the Future (<a href=""></a>), the MetLife Foundation Community College Excellence Award celebrates and highlights the accomplishments of colleges that are helping less-advantaged youth and adults succeed and advance in college and careers. The award recognizes community colleges whose policies and practices provide pathways to opportunity for large numbers of individuals from the following populations: first-generation college-goers, at-risk and out-of-school youth, unemployed and underemployed adults, adults with limited English language proficiency, and others who lack the skills necessary for college success. Successful applicants will show how they combine strong leadership, effective programming, and attention to outcomes to create and institutionalize improvement, throughout the college, that meets the varied learning needs of harder-to-serve students.

The awards program will recognize two community colleges for their institution-wide commitment to helping diverse students enter and succeed in postsecondary education. The winning colleges will each receive a $30,000 award and national recognition.

Visit the Jobs for the Future Web site to download the application for the 2006 award and for complete program details.
