COVID-19 Response Grants
The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus has significantly altered the lives of individuals across the world. As we all adapt to a "new normal," MCAN remains 100% committed to supporting our partners in college access and attaining the goal Sixty by 30: 60 percent of Michigan residents complete a postsecondary certificate or degree by the year 2030. As we move forward in this fluid, ever-changing environment, MCAN is offering a new grant opportunity: COVID-19 Response Grants.
While MCAN understands that the needs of organizations, schools, colleges, and communities are vast right now, funding for COVID-19 Response Grants must directly support postsecondary readiness, access and success activities that are aligned with MCAN's mission, vision, and values. There must be a strong and clear connection to postsecondary readiness, access, and success in order to be eligible for this funding.
Funding and Administration
COVID-19 Response Grants provide a flexible funding pathway for Michigan high schools, Local College Access Networks, community-based nonprofit organizations, and higher education institutions to support emergent postsecondary projects and programs in their communities. Funding is offered through two pathways: up to $2,500 in mini-grants targeted toward high schools and up to $10,000 targeted toward a community response. Examples of proposals that fall within the grant parameters include and are not limited to: virtual Decision Day, summer-melt support, transition advising support, SAT prep support for rising Seniors, and providing WiFi hot-spots to support virtual college access activities.
