Funding Opportunity: New America’s New Models for Career Preparation

The New Models for Career Preparation project strives to create a better understanding of the design, financing, and institutional strategy principles that go into developing high-quality non-degree programs at community colleges. These programs address economic inequity among persons, particularly among women and people of color, who have no postsecondary education and lack time or money to earn a degree. As part of this project, New America has launched a Request for Proposal to fund six community colleges that excel at non-degree workforce development. Each selected college will receive $50,000 to work with New America for one year. Applications are due September 24, 2021 by close of business Pacific Time with winners announced by late October.
