The Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) supports innovative grants and cooperative agreements to improve postsecondary education.
Under this area of special focus FIPSE is looking to fund projects that propose innovative strategies to benefit working adults and displaced workers who are pursuing degrees or credentials in community colleges. Projects may include, but are not limited to, activities that improve: academic remediation; tutoring; academic and personal counseling; registration processes; students’ course selection and scheduling; instructional delivery; student support services related to childcare, transportation, or educational costs, such as textbook rental; and career counseling.
