CPE earns $400,000 grant to better serve adult students
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
The Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) has been awarded a $400,000 Lumina Foundation grant to encourage more adults to pursue certificate and associate programs in business, information technology, transportation/logistics, advanced manufacturing, healthcare and construction.
Kentucky’s Adult Promise program will raise awareness of tuition-free education programs available through the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship (WRKS) program, and build program supports like better advising and mentoring to ensure adults persist in their educational goals. The program will target low-income and underrepresented adults who have no prior postsecondary credential.
