Grant Writer Request #11102020C

Primary Purpose:
To expand our in-house grant writing capacity.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
Matched Savings for Education
Students and their families who income-qualify may be eligible to deposit up to $500 into our organization's savings account each year. Their savings are then matched 8:1 by us. This brings their total available funds for financial assistance up to $4,500 per academic year. The funds are used for tuition, books, fees, and other approved educational related expenses. In partnership with Florida Prepaid College Foundation purchases STARS contracts to double the impact of non-government funds available for financial assistance at the 8:1 ratio.

Near Peer Coaching for Postsecondary Success
Beginning August 2020, our organization, in partnership with Volunteer Florida, recruits, trains and deploys AmeriCorps members to provide near-peer success coaching to economically disadvantaged students in the areas of postsecondary access, personal finance training, and career planning. Near peer coaching for postsecondary success supports student preparation for postsecondary pursuit of a non-degree award (career & technical education), associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree, or advanced degree. The Segal AmeriCorps Education Award, up to $6,195 per year, is granted to AmeriCorps members who complete their terms of service to pay education costs at qualified institutions of higher education, for educational training, or to repay qualified students loans.
