Regional Promise Grant Application Materials and Process for 2017-2019
The Regional Promise Grant of 2017-2019 is intended for the development and/or expansion of consortia of educational service districts, school districts and post-secondary institutions building collaborative, innovative, and flexible ways to foster a college-going culture across the region and to create additional opportunities for high school students to participate and earn credit in college-level courses. Each consortium will plan to serve either at least 10,000 students or 50% or more of 5th -12th grade students in school districts participating in the grant and must include:
- At least one Oregon public post-secondary institution
- At least three school districts;
- At least one education service district.
A strategic investment of $3 million was designated by the legislature for the Regional Promise Grant. The Department may award five to ten full grants of between $200,000-$300,000. The Department will also provide up to 10 planning grants of $20,000 for regions needing time to meet the readiness criteria for a full grant.
