The New York State Education Department (NYSED) anticipates a January release of their Liberty Partnerships Program. This grant offers funding for collaborations between degree-granting institutions and secondary schools to improve drop-out rates for at-risk youth in grades K-12 by preparing students for college or careers.
New York State Institutes of Higher Education (IHE) are eligible to apply with a partner school. Partnerships may include additional schools, colleges, or community organizations.
The minimum award for previous program years was $200,000 for projects serving at least 160 students for a 5-year period.
